'Shameful': Some Inter fans fuming with what Lukaku has tweeted after signing for Chelsea

Inter Milan supporters on social media were not best pleased with the way Romelu Lukaku announced himself as a Chelsea player.

After he was officially unveiled as a Blue to the world, Lukaku put out a few Tweets saying he was ‘happy to be back home’.

Home in that case was Chelsea – the club he left in 2014 to embark on a journey to become one of football’s most feared forwards.

However, followers of Inter were not so hospitable to the Belgian’s latest remarks.

They dragged up previous posts by Lukaku where he claimed the San Siro was his home.

Their outrage also stemmed from the striker not wishing the Serie A side and their loyal contingent goodbye.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:


Lukaku not feeling the love

Based on the Inter cohort’s theory, then plenty of other groups should be enraged by Lukaku’s comments.

Everton housed the centre-forward for four years, initially on loan then permanently until 2017.

After his time with the Toffees, he moved to Manchester United, which admittedly wasn’t exactly homely.

Maybe even West Bromwich Albion supporters should be up in arms after they enjoyed his services for a season in 2012.

But Inter disciples do have the most right to be upset, considering the joy and success Lukaku brought them for two years.

He was the main reason behind the Nerazzurri’s first league title in a decade.

But the 28-year-old has now moved on, with ambitions of pushing Chelsea toward their own domestic crown.
