Simone Inzaghi acknowledges that Romelu Lukaku’s journey with Inter deserved a different conclusion and shares his thoughts on their match against Al-Nassr.
The Belgium international had actively pursued a return to San Siro from Chelsea on loan, and the clubs were close to finalizing a permanent transfer when he abruptly ended negotiations, possibly due to interest from their Serie A rivals Juventus.
“This story deserved a different ending,” was all Inzaghi said to Sport Mediaset on the Romelu Lukaku situation.
Inter Milan played in a friendly match against Al-Nassr which ended in a 1-1 draw. Davide Frattesi, Inter’s new signee, scored his first goal for the team.

“All the new arrivals had a good game and it’s not easy to come to a side like Inter, who have had a definitive playing style for the last two years.
“We showed good organisation and created many chances, but should’ve taken more of them. We also needed to do better on the Al-Nassr goal situation, but we will improve as time goes on and hopefully will be sharper in front of goal too once our fitness levels improve.”
