Romelu Lukaku believes his teammates at Inter are hard-working and praised them for having a great mentality.

 

Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku was on fire against Bologna earlier today. The former Manchester United striker scored just at the start of the last quarter to get level with their opponent. Further, in the stoppage time, Lukaku converted from the spot that saw Inter sweep all three points.

Lukaku had a lot of praise for the way his team reacted to turn the tie for themselves.

“It was such an important penalty because we had to win, we needed the three points. I have to give credit to Bologna: they played with a lot of intensity, they pressed us a lot.

“But we have such a great mentality, I’m happy with the win,” Lukaku told Sky Sports.

“I work every day to improve, I’m 26 years old and I’ve still got room to grow as a player. We don’t pay attention to the results of other teams, we’re staying focused on Inter and we’ll just think about ourselves, about going out onto the pitch and winning games.

 

 

“The more work you put in on something, the easier it becomes. As I stepped up for the penalty all I was thinking about was scoring and helping the team win,” Lukaku spoke to InterTV

“Bologna scored a great goal, but our intensity and mentality in the last 20 minutes made the difference.

“It’s very important to me that I work every day to be at the top of my game in terms of fitness, goals, and assists.

“Today I’m happy with the win, I’m a striker whose job it is to score goals so I’m happy to have done that. Lautaro and I are doing well for the team, we both want to win.”
