The Inter striker managed to score his first Serie A goal in a long while, and Simone Inzaghi hailed him for improving
Romelu Lukaku’s goal from the spot helped Inter Milan win 3-1 over Udinese, leading to Simone Inzaghi praising him.
Inzaghi says they have to have faith in Lukaku
Lukaku managed to score a Serie A goal after 189 days. The Belgian scored Inter’s first goal in their 3-1 victory over Udinese from the penalty spot. Sandi Lovric answered his goal. However, a perfect volley from Mkhitaryan and a late goal from Lautaro saw Inter make it 3-1.
The Chelsea loanee has been hit with a hamstring injury all season but seems to be all fit now.
Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia: “Lukaku is improving day by day, game by game, training session by training session.
“We have great faith in Rom. He had a few problems last season in London, we brought him back here and then he had this serious injury that troubled him for four months.
“If he is starting games, that means he is in good shape and playing will help him strengthen that form.”
“Lukaku is improving day by day, game by game, training session by training session.“
Despite their excellent form, Inter are currently 15 points behind Serie A leaders Napoli. Still, the win over Udinese lets Inter go into their Champions League fixture against Porto on a high note.
“We knew Udinese are a very physical side with good technique who cause you a lot of problems, as we already saw in the reverse fixture,” he added.
“It was a good first half with the only setback being the goal we conceded, when we should’ve been more focused on the loose ball.
“I am glad with the result, it is an important victory that allows us to keep going.”
