Italian journalist Enzo Bucchioni believes that Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has not conducted himself well in his recent interview regarding his decision to leave Inter in the summer.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, Bucchioni characterized the Belgian’s remarks as “shameful” and suggested that the striker left the Nerazzurri in search of more money.
Lukaku’s sale to Chelsea over the summer rocked the Nerazzurri, as the club lost a player who had led the team for both goals and assists last campaign.
The 28-year-old has not yet found anything like the form he showed in an Inter shirt with his new club, and in a candid interview with Sky Sport Italia admitted that he still feels regret over making the move.
However, Bucchioni believes that after making the decision to leave the Nerazzurri for a club making him a bigger offer, these comments were not appropriate from the striker.
“It’s shameful behaviour,” he stated. “He comes to Inter, has an extraordinary season partly thanks to the club, asks for an extension despite already having a contract, he wanted more money and Inter could not give it to him.”
Bucchioni gave the opinion that “If you loved Inter, even without Conte you could have stayed. And instead you decided to leave and earn more.”
“Now he goes and does this because he isn’t playing as much and doesn’t get the same recognition that he did at Inter,” he continued. “I would never sign someone like that again.”
