Antonio Conte said “Romelu Lukaku showed why we tried so hard to sign him” and referred to Mauro Icardi as a former Inter player.
The Coach spoke to Sky Sport Italia after a 4-0 victory over Lecce, which saw new signing Lukaku on target on his Serie A debut after his hard-fought move from Manchester United.
“Let’s not forget Lukaku cost €65m to be paid over five years, so when people talk about big money spent, it wasn’t even that much,” insisted Conte.
