Inzaghi frustrated by Lukaku’s performance after Inter loss

Inter’s loss to Fiorentina left Romelu Lukaku with a frustrating game, and his coach was far from pleased with his performance.

Giacomo Bonaventura’s second-half header extended Inter’s losing streak in Serie A to their worst in six years at San Siro.

Lukaku couldn’t score a goal despite 1.2 expected goal

Bonaventura scored the winning goal soon after Lukaku’s terrible miss, causing the Nerazzurri to suffer their third consecutive defeat in the top-flight matches.

Lukaku found his goalscoring form again during his international duty with Belgium.

However, he couldn’t replicate that form in his club side, as he missed all three of his shots, including a close-range opportunity where the goal was open.

Despite having 1.2 expected goals, Lukaku didn’t manage to hit the target.

Inter coach Inzaghi didn’t solely blame Lukaku for the team’s performance but emphasized the significance of those missed chances.

It is reported that Lukaku confronted Inzaghi about the lack of opportunities he has received while being fit this season.

He said: “If he had scored those chances, Lukaku’s performance would be judged in a very different way.

“His role is to create the opportunities, make the movements that the team needs.

“He wasn’t the only one who had chances today, so I wouldn’t focus only on Romelu.”

“There is great disappointment, we lost two consecutive home matches,” he added. “We need to work more, starting with me.

“At the moment, we need to be more determined, because we had so many chances to score and we should have done.

“I cannot ask for more in terms of effort, as the players did everything I asked of them.”
