Mauro Icardi’s agent-wife Wanda Nara claims “it would be nice to see Romelu Lukaku also turn up in big games. Inter’s last No 9 scored 150 goals.”
Lukaku was signed as a replacement for Icardi over the summer and took his No 9 shirt, with the Argentine having departed for Paris Saint-Germain, but Wanda made it clear she was not impressed with the Belgian.
“It would be nice to see him also turn up in big games,” she told Tiki Taka.
“In the Champions League he didn’t score and now he will have to watch it on TV.
“Inter’s last No 9 scored 150 goals.”
Although her husband was not a part of Antonio Conte’s plans, Nara praised the coach for “making the difference” on the blue half of San Siro.
“The real added value to Inter is Conte. He really makes the difference. He's only played three times with the midfield he asked for at the start of the season.
“However, people always change their minds. Lukaku was criticised after the Champions League [exit] but now he’s treated like a phenomenon.”
Lukaku scored just two goals in six Champions League group games for the Nerazzurri, whereas Icardi bagged five for PSG.
