- Lukaku left the Red Devils for Inter Milan last summer.
- It's been more than a week since the ex-United striker self-isolated amid the coronavirus crisis in Italy.
- Italy's death toll is now even higher than China's where the outbreak started in late 2019.
- Lukaku can't even meet his mum now as she has diabetes.
Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed what does it mean to spend more than a week in self-isolation in the country that now has a higher death toll (3,405) than China (3,249) where the coronavirus outbreak started in late 2019.
"I can't go outside, I can't train. It's been nine days [I've been in]," he told Ian Wright's YouTube channel. "They [Inter] got me a bike because the players live in the city centre in small apartments.
"I didn't have space so in a group chat they said to the players 'who does not have a bike or a treadmill at the house'. So there were loads of players like 'me, me ,me, me me'. Two hours later they brought every player a bike.
"I miss the regular life. Being with my mum and my son. Even being with my brother and people outside. I'm thinking about everybody. It is bad.
"You can have no more contact with a human being. I miss training and playing games in front of fans. Now you start appreciating what you have.
"I'm a lucky guy. You have to be very careful because you might touch somebody and they might have the virus. My mum has diabetes and they have a higher risk to get into trouble when they get it.
"So I cannot even go home and touch her. My mum is not even going out now. She's just going in the backyard or late at night she does her walk and then she comes back.
"I'm with my physio now. They bring me food every time as I'm on a strict diet. Every day around 12 pm they send somebody from the training ground to give us the food so we keep our strict diet. I'm still on my fish and my veggies."
Lukaku left United for Inter last summer. The 26-year-old scored 23 goals in 35 appearances for the Nerazzurri before the Serie A was indefinitely suspended earlier this month.
