In the 2020-21 season, Lukaku spearheaded the Nerazzurri to Scudetto success as he was named MVP but left to rejoin Chelsea in a deal worth €115 million at the end of the campaign.
Now, after a difficult 12 months in west London, the Belgium forward looks set to return to Inter but their Curva Nord ultra group have said they no longer hold him in as much high regard as they once did. A statement read: “Given Lukaku’s likely return to Inter, we would like to make some points clear:
- The Curva will support Inter and won’t jeer the player (despite his behaviour last summer)
- No one should greet him with scarves and banners pertaining to the Curva or related groups
- Whatever else will happen to him in the future must be earned on the pitch with humility and sweat…
“He was supported (and treated) like a King, now he is just one like the others.
“We want to make it clear would never cheer against Lukaku if he again wears the Inter shirt.”
The statement also added the Curva has “acknowledged Lukaku’s betrayal and were very hurt by it.”
In December, following a controversial interview in which Lukaku made public his belief that leaving Inter for Chelsea had been a mistake, some fan made their feelings clear with a banner outside San Siro which read: “It doesn’t matter who runs away in the rain, what matters is who stays in the storm. Bye Romelu.”
