The Romelu Lukaku saga continues.
Lukaku has become a fan favorite during the summer transfer window. After Chelsea fans turned against him last season when he said he wanted to move to Inter Milan while still at Chelsea, this time fans of the Italian Serie A club were disappointed and angry at his behavior.
Lukaku had a liver. Lukaku was in contact with several clubs after his Inter Milan loan ended, saying he wanted to play in Serie A instead of returning to Chelsea. The problem came when it was revealed that he had been in contact with Inter Milan’s nemesis Juventus, despite playing for Inter Milan. Lukaku was willing to move to Juventus in order to return to Serie A, which enraged Inter Milan fans. Even though Lukaku’s move to Juventus didn’t happen, Inter Milan fans have now started calling him a “snake,” which means traitor.
Lukaku’s final destination for the controversial player was AS Roma. Roma, who were in need of striker reinforcements, approached Lukaku in the final days of the transfer window, and the player, who had his sights set on leaving Chelsea and heading to Italy, promptly accepted the offer. After a ridiculous tug-of-war with Juventus and Inter Milan, Lukaku ended up with Roma instead of Juventus or Inter.
Lukaku’s fan-favorite comments didn’t stop at Roma. “You know what’s good about Roma,” Lukaku said in an interview with the club, “they support you when you’re doing well. For someone like me and for other teams, this is really good,” he said, praising Roma’s fan culture. 스포츠토토
This was interpreted as a disrespectful comment to the fans of Chelsea and Inter Milan, two clubs Lukaku has had to deal with in the past, especially in recent years. Chelsea and Inter Milan fans took this as Lukaku saying that the fans didn’t cheer for him and didn’t support him, and it was a disrespectful comment, especially for the Inter Milan fans who were with him on his way to winning the league title.
Lukaku also talked about the reception he received at the airport and how he felt when he arrived in Rome and saw the Colosseum.
