‘Whether it was made quickly or not, Romelu has proved a lot of people wrong. He’s worked unbelievably hard.

‘There was talk that he was overweight and couldn’t do this or that. He’s smashed record and made history in Italy, he’s been unbelievable for the club.

‘For me he was fantastic even in the Premier League, to go out there and face another challenge, I think it was the right choice for him. He deserves all the plaudits he is getting.’ 

Lukaku has excelled in Serie A since his arrival and helped Inter Milan claim the title this.
