Romelu Lukaku, who rejoined Chelsea for a club-record £97.5 million in August, was “not satisfied” with his part-time job under Thomas Tuchel earlier this season.
In an interview with Sky Sport Italia that aired on Thursday, the 28-year-old also stated that he wished to return to Inter Milan in the near future.
Lukaku remarked at the time, “I’m not thrilled with the situation, but that’s normal.” “However, I am a worker, and I must not surrender.”
Since rejoining Chelsea this summer, the Belgian has scored seven goals in 18 games. He’s also been plagued by injury and illness, and he’s been left out of the starting lineup when he’s been well.
However, Lukaku has had a recent upturn in form, scoring in his last two Premier League appearances, after discussions about his role with Tuchel.
“I think I needed a performance like this today. The manager has his reasons but I kept working hard,” Lukaku said after scoring in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa on 26 December.
“It’s a good win and personally for me I’m happy. Balls from crosses and the movement in the box – I try to be less static.”
