Romelu Lukaku sent a heartfelt message to Antonio Conte after the coach terminated his Inter contract. ‘Thank you for all you did. I owe you a lot…’
The striker was convinced to make the move to Serie A by Conte, who had already wanted to work with him at Chelsea.
It proved a masterstroke, as the Belgian had the two best seasons of his career, reaching the Europa League Final and winning the Scudetto.
This evening, Conte terminated his contract with Inter by mutual consent and Lukaku wrote this message on Instagram.
“2014 we spoke for the first time and we have had a bond ever since. We had many moments to work together but only god knows why it never happened earlier.
“You came at the right time and basically changed me as a player and made me even stronger mentally and more importantly we won together!
“Winning is and it’s all that matters to you and I’m glad that i have had you as a coach. I will keep your principles for the rest of my career ( physical preparation, mental and just the drive to win…) it was a pleasure to play for you!
“Thank you for all what you did. I owe you a lot…”
