It only took a minute and 20 seconds for Romelu Lukaku to score his first-ever official match goal for Inter since his return

The former Chelsea opened the scoring against Lecce this Saturday, during the first day of Serie A (2-1).

1 minute 20 of play only

Lukaku, on the lookout at the far post, took advantage of a nice header from Matteo Darmian to open the scoring from close – also with a header – for the Nerazzurri from the 2nd minute on the pitch of the promoted.

“Big Rom”, spearhead of Inter Milan crowned champion of Italy in 2021, returned this summer on loan to Milan . Only a year ago, he left for Chelsea for 115 million euros but failed to win in London. In two years at Inter, with Antonio Conte as coach, the 29-year-old Belgian international had scored 64 goals in 95 matches.

“He will score a lot of goals”

Simone Inzaghi , now on the bench, could only salute these successful debuts:

“I’m happy, he is very involved. He came back with great desire and availability”,

“His physical condition is good. Like all the other players, he can improve, but he works a lot. He’s someone who coaches others and he will score a lot of goals,”

Simone Inzaghi commented on DAZN. about the Belgian. 

“Everyone is happy that he came back, we all saw his qualities tonight,” confirmed his team-mate Denzel Dumfries, scorer of the decisive goal for the Nerazzurri in added time. “It’s important for us to have players of this quality,” he said.
