Inter Milan’s fans are not planning any sort of organized protest directed at Romelu Lukaku in this evening’s match against Roma.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
This evening will mark the second time that Lukaku faces Inter as an opponent after his summer soap opera with the Nerazzurri.
The last time that the Belgian came up against the Nerazzurri was at the San Siro.
That was certainly a return that was high on emotion and drama.
Inter fans at the San Siro made perfectly clear how they felt about Lukaku.
As though the official statement from Inter ultras group the Curva Nord branding the 30-year-old a “traitor” and “Brutus” wasn’t enough, the Nord also had further plans for him.
With Roma travelling to the San Siro at the end of October, the group “welcomed” Lukaku home.
The Nord distributed thousands of whistles to use against the striker.
Whenever Lukaku touched the ball, the sound of the whistles would start up. Inter’s fans made clear their disapproval in a way that the former Manchester United and Everton striker could hardly ignore.
No Inter Fan Protests Planned For Romelu Lukaku In Roma Clash
This evening will see Lukaku face Inter for the second time this season.
And whilst it will take place in the comparatively less hostile territory of the Stadio Olimpico, it is not as though there will not be a sizable travelling Inter presence.
And the Nerazzurri fans have hardly changed their views or softened their stance.
But according to the Gazzetta, there will not be anything organized similar to the whistles at the San Siro this time around.
It is reasonable to expect that there will be some boos and jeers towards Lukaku.
But the Inter fans will leave it at that.
