- Former Inter Milan defender Ivan Cordoba has suggested that United shouldn’t have prematurely sold Lukaku.
- ‘In my opinion, Lukaku is proving everyone to be a champion,’ he says.
- The Colombian also believes Antonio Conte has been fundamental to his improvement.
Speaking to Daily Mail, the Colombian said: “Lukaku is an extraordinary player. Manchester United did not understand the player's potential and his last season was bad for him. In my opinion, Lukaku is proving everyone to be a champion.
“He is determined and the Premier League has improved him a lot. I met him: he is a positive leader in the changing rooms.
“It's a shame that Manchester United sold him, but I'm happy that Inter bought him. Antonio Conte has been fundamental to his form at Inter.”
Lukaku has been in impressive form for Inter, having scored 17 goals in 25 Serie A appearances. However, the Premier League and Italian top-flight aren’t quite the same in terms of competitiveness, as the Belgian often got bullied into disappearing at United.
Moreover, he didn’t really help his reputation towards the end by going AWOL from training and leaking training speed stats to push towards an exit from the club. With Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford excelling the attack, he’s honestly not missed either.
