If it were up to Ariel Jacobs, the former coach of Romelu Lukaku at Anderlecht, Lukaku will be completely in his hands when he returns to Inter. “I think something happened at Chelsea that we know nothing about, but at Inter he will have to prove himself again,” he said.

Lukaku made his debut for Anderlecht in the 2008-09 season under Ariël Jacobs. With an impending return to Inter, Jacobs once again spoke of a sort of “debut” at Milan. “Romelu has to start from 0 again at Inter. He has to prove that he’s back. So it’s first and foremost important to restore the relationship with the fans and the striker can do that in only one way: score goals. If Romelu comes back and scores in every game, it’s all Something easier. But it is a huge challenge for him: he has to prove himself, both in training and during matches, “says Jacobs.

“Fans expect a lot from him, so it’s all in his hands,” Jacobs continues. “Romelo needs to feel loved and not with any other team he has the feeling he had with Milan. Although I think he will also come back because I don’t think he has any other chances. With all that Chelsea has spent on him and the high salary he receives He knows that the chances of a transfer are slim. I have the impression that Inter is the only possible solution for him, especially after a disappointing year,” said Jacobs.

Whether or not Chelsea was the wrong choice for Lukaku, Jacobs seems to agree. “Leaving Inter in the best moment of his career and then returning to the previous team with a lot of doubts… As his first adventure at Chelsea did not go well, the English press was never on his side. But I also did not expect such a season to come. He already knew English football so it wasn’t new. There was talk of the Tuchel game but they must have talked a long time before he came back to Chelsea. Tuchel wanted just that, even though Werner and Havertz were already there. I think something happened. We don’t know about him,” Jacobs concludes.
