Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has spoken about his relationship with strike partner Lautaro Martinez, noting that the pair get along very well.
Speaking in a social media Q&A, as reported by FCInter1908, the 29-year-old explained that he and Martinez have a good friendship off the pitch in addition to their chemistry on it, and also opened up about fellow teammates Nicolo Barella and Marcelo Brozovic.

Asked to describe teammate Barella, the Belgian called the 25-year-old “Nice, honest, and serious.”
Lastly, Lukaku was asked about Brozovic, and said “We joke around all day, but when you have to go into battle he’s right there with you.”
