Lukaku: Conte behind good form

Romelu Lukaku admits he is relieved to be ‘finally’ working under Antonio Conte at Inter and believes Serie A is ‘moving’ with regards to stamping out racism.

Lukaku followed up his two Serie A finishes for Inter with a goal and assist for Belgium during their 4-0 demolition of Scotland on Monday evening.

“Finally I’m working with Conte, a Coach who has wanted me for a long time,” the striker said after the game.

“The Nerazzurri have a nice group, just like here in the national team. I scored a nice goal and we’re very dangerous on the counterattack.

“It’s important that the team play like this. We showed concentration and intensity, and we scored some good goals.”

The 26-year-old was then asked about the monkey chants he received from Cagliari fans before the international break.

“I only said a few words, but they were powerful: everyone understood. Serie A is moving. I hope UEFA and FIFA are next.”
