Martinez: Lukaku needed 'fresh air'

Belgium CT Roberto Martinez believes Inter fans will see a revitalised Romelu Lukaku as the striker ‘needed fresh air’.

The summer-long Lukaku saga ended last week as the Belgian finally left Manchester United to join Inter in a reported €75m deal.

The 26-year-old has made an instant impact, generating plenty of buzz on social media and scoring four goals on his debut.

“The link between Romelu and Manchester United had simply come to an end,” Martinez told Het Laaste Niewus.

“He needed fresh air: he’s found it at Inter and joined a very ambitious club.”
