Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has described training with new club Inter Milan as “real work” compared to his experiences in England.
The Belgium international ended weeks of speculation when he joined the Serie A giants on deadline day in a £74million deal after falling out of favour with Red Devils’ boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 26-year-old did not feature for United during pre-season but made a promising start to life in Italy, finding the net four times during Inter’s 8-0 victory over Virtus Bergamo over the weekend.
Despite being with Antonio Conte’s side for less than a week, Lukaku is already feeling the effects of training with his new club and has already noticed big differences from the sessions he was used to during his time in the Premier League.
“The city is nice, I don’t mind. I didn’t come here to live,” he added. “I came here to help the team to achieve something.”
