MI9 is no more, RL9 era has begun: Lukaku had first training session and was the last to leave facility
Oh no, you don’t come to Malpensa at 2:00 am for just anyone. Lukaku looked like a child peeking beyond the glass and listen to the fans sing: “Segna a Torino, Romelu segna a Torino.”
Here he was, Lukaku, the new number 9 of Inter and this is not figuratively of course. The giant will wear the number 9 shirt of Inter which will therefore no longer be on the back of Icardi. This is a logical choice of the club if only for reasons of pure marketing strategy. RL9 is the most expensive purchase in the history of Inter, do you think that the club will not want to market him as much as possible?
Yesterday was a long day for the Belgian. The first time he woke up in Milan was tiring but very pleasant. After bathing in the crowd at the airport and spending the night at a hotel in San Siro area, Lukaku welcomed a special visitor: Antonio Conte. The last time that these two crossed paths was in Singapore on the occasion of Inter-Manchester United match.
At around 5:00 pm, Lukaku arrived at Appiano Gentile and the same Conte and Oriali were there to greet him. The two introduced Lukaku to the dressing room and then he went on the pitch to train for the first time. He was the last to left Appiano because he needs to find optimal form again and so it is difficult for him to go to Valencia with his teammates.
