Romelu Lukaku has struggled with injury this season, making just five appearances for Inter Milan. The striker was born in 1993, so he was not in the best shape for the World Cup, where he did not have a starting time for Belgium after 3 group stage matches.
Experiencing a bad period, now is the time when the former Chelsea star is determined to get back in shape for Inter before the second phase of the season. According to Gazzetta, the Belgian striker will practice during the 3 days off that Simone Inzaghi gives the students.
This means that Lukaku will also train on Christmas Day, to prepare for the first match of the year against Napoli. Lukaku played 88 minutes of Inter’s 2-0 win over Reggina on Thursday and he scored a second-half goal.
According to media reports, Lukaku is expected to be on the pitch for only 45 minutes, but the Chelsea loanee has told Inzaghi he is ready to play more. Therefore, the Belgian striker stayed on the field almost the whole match.
