Lukaku: 'Very important penalty'

Romelu Lukaku admits his stoppage-time winner was “a very important penalty” for Inter to get the points in Bologna.

The Belgian had already tapped in the equaliser after a deflected Roberto Soriano opener.

“This was a very important penalty, as we simply had to win today,” Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia after the 2-1 victory.

“Bologna played with a lot of intensity and impressed me today, but we had a good team mentality and I’m happy.

“I’m pleased to have had such a good start, but I am 26 years old and I need to grow every day, along with the whole team.”

Inter have at least temporarily gone top of the table, awaiting Juventus against Torino in the Derby della Mole tonight.

“I am not interested in Juve’s results. What’s important to me is that Inter win. We won today and that’s what matters.”
