Lukaku Reaffirms Affection For Inter Milan After Clinching Serie A Title

Inter Milan defeated Crotone 2-0 on Saturday, meaning Atalanta’s failure to beat Sassuolo on Sunday helped them open up an unassailable 13-point lead at the top of the table and bring home the Scudetto after eleven years.

Lukaku has been a major cornerstone of Inter’s success this season, with the Belgium international scoring 21 goals and providing 10 assists across 33 appearances in the top flight to help topple Juventus’ nine-year monopoly of Serie A.

Lukaku’s impressive form for Antonio Conte’s side has seen him linked with a move back to England but he gave no indication of a desire to change clubs after getting into his car to celebrate the title triumph with Inter’s fans on the streets.

"I am so happy for all the Inter fans in the world, for the team, the staff, the president and everyone," Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia.

"It was a wonderful year for us, I am truly proud to play for Inter. I wanted to come out here and celebrate along with the people.

"I told my friend this was the best way to experience it, to be there with the fans. For me and many of my team-mates, this is our first league title, so it’s a moment we wanted to share with them."

"Last year was good too, but yes, this was the best of my career," Lukaku, who arrived from United in 2019, added.

"It's wonderful and I hope to continue like this. I want to thank everyone, I am truly so happy."
