The Belgian forward has returned to the Stadio Meazza on loan from Chelsea this summer and will start against Lecce tonight in the Nerazzurri’s Serie A opener.
“I am not surprised he returned to Milan. Actually, I welcome him back to his real home,” Klinsmann, a former Inter striker told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“However, never take anything for granted, there is a bit of risk. This is a different Inter, they played differently last season with other strikers such as Dzeko and Correa.
“Now, it will be important to understand whether Romelu will make himself available, starting from scratch with a new system. I have no doubts it will happen, he is back to being happy again.”
Lukaku scored 64 goals in 95 appearances during his previous two-year spell at Inter under Antonio Conte, winning the title in his second season at the club. He only managed 15 goals in 44 appearances with Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea last season, so he pushed to return to his former club.
However, things have changed at the Stadio Meazza now, so will he need to adapt to Inzaghi or the other way around?
“Both of them must make a step toward the other. Inzaghi is no Lippi or Trapattoni, but he could become like them,” said Klinsmann, who has no regrets about Paulo Dybala.
The Argentinean striker came close to joining Inter in the summer, but the Nerazzurri failed to reach an agreement with his entourage so La Joya joined Roma instead.
“Dybala is a talent, but where would he have played? I am not disappointed he didn’t join because there was no space for him, but it’s a great coup for Roma,” the ex-Germany boss claimed.
How about Milan Skriniar? Inzaghi has claimed that the Slovakia international won’t leave.
“It’s crucial to make him stay and Robin Gosens is also important. Now he has space to return to his standards, he never gives up and Inter will soon see the real Robin,” Klinsmann concluded.
