Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has fired back at critics who called him “lazy” and “slow” during his stay at Manchester United.
“I was ‘lazy, didn’t run, I didn’t do this and that,’ when I was in England a year ago,” Lukaku told The Times.
“They call me the room’s hardest worker here. If you look at me playing here and there, I mean, there are changes, but there is always the [same] Rom.”
“If you look at me right now, you see another result, you see the entire guy, you see the full potential. In England, you see what I could have been doing.”
“They’re going to call me slow, and I’m like, slow? Me, slow? I can’t keep up with Man Utd’s fast pace game?”
“If I were slow, I wouldn’t get a penalty like I did in the final against Sevilla.”
“Are you going to convince me that it’s quicker at 27 than I was at 25? That’s all I’m trying to suggest. It’s just small things. I was like, you know all? Screw this. I’m done.”
