Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has expressed his frustration with Chelsea’s current system and has admitted he could return to Inter.
The Belgian international is on the verge of returning to full fitness having been on a lay off since mid-October due to injury and also Covid.
The 28-year old however feels, the style employed by blues boss Thomas Tuchel doesn’t suit him while he will continue to be professional.
“Physically I’m fine, even better than before. After two years in Italy, in which I worked a lot at Inter with coaches and nutritionists, I am physically fine,” he told Sky Sport.
“But I’m not happy with the situation [at Chelsea], this is normal. I think the coach [Tuchel] has chosen to play with another system, I just have to not give up, continue to work and be a professional.
“I am not happy with the situation, but I am a worker and I must not give up.”
The former Everton and Manchester United striker went on to talk about his move from Inter to Chelsea, about how he left the fans and his hopes to return to the Nerazurri while he is ‘still at a good level’.
“I think everything that happened was not supposed to happen like this,” he added.
“How I left Inter, how I communicated with the fans, this bothers me because it is not the right time now, but even when I left it was not the right time.
“Now I think it is right to speak because I have always said that I have Inter in my heart, I will return to play there, I really hope so.
“I am in love with Italy, this is rightly the time to talk and let people know what really happened without talking badly about people because I am not like that.”
Lukaku continued: “First I want to say a big apology to the Inter fans because I think the way I left should have been different. I had to talk to you first, because the things you have done for me, for my family, for my mother, for my son, are things that remain for me in life.
“I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more.”
Lukaku who left Chelsea in 2014 returned last summer in a mega move which cost the Blues £97.5 million eclipsing Kai Havertz’ fee as the most expensive signing ever at the bridge signing a five-year deal in the process.
He has since netted five times in 13 Premier League appearances.
