Former Torino and Roma striker Francesco Graziani believes that Inter attacker Romelu Lukaku has found his true form after he netted in the 2-0 win over the Giallorossi yesterday.
Appearing as a guest on Italian television broadcaster Sport Mediaset, and as reported via Milan based Inter Milan news-site FCInter1908, Graziani suggested that the Nerazzurri were reaping the rewards of Lukaku putting his miserable season behind him, and showing his true value to the club following his loan move from Chelsea last summer.
Meanwhile, the former Italy international criticised Inter coach Simone Inzaghi for lacking consistency in his team selection, particularly with his strikers, and felt that Lukaku would benefit from more playing time.
“Sometimes he rotates pairs too much in my opinion and in the end he doesn’t satisfy anyone,” Graziani stated.
“I’ve always thought that Lukaku needs to play a few more games, if he’s doing well we know what a player he is. He’s recovered well in the last month.
“Edin Dzeko has he has always behaved well, Lautaro Martinez is the one who has contributed the most.
“Last summer we were met by Lukaku’s cousin, now the real one is back. The depth and physical strength that Lukaku can give you cannot be underestimated.”
Lukaku scored 64 goals in 95 appearances for Inter between 2019 and 2021, before signing for former club Chelsea in a €115 million deal.
The move to the Premier League failed to work out though, with the Belgian netting just eight league goals before returning to Inter on loan last year.
