Romelu Lukaku is poised to re-sign with Inter Milan, and their supporters are unsure on how to feel about it.
He led them to victory in the title two seasons ago, and while he was excellent for them, there was significant controversy surrounding his departure to join Chelsea. He conveyed messages to the followers through the media, but they were received with icy disdain.
They won’t accept him right away even if he’s on his way back now. He will need to regain their respect, one extremist group claims.
They warned fans in their statement not to wait at the airport to “drool” over the returning striker when he lands in Italy.
In all honesty, Lukaku must be happy that the famously fickle ultras aren’t adopting an even harder position than this given that he has severed ties with Chelsea supporters.
In a year, we wonder how he will be received when he returns to Chelsea.
