‘I’m a man with a mission’: Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku admits his World Cup heartbreak with Belgium has given him ‘energy’ to improve his game
- Romelu Lukaku stated that he has been a ‘man with a mission’ since the 2018 World Cup
- The striker of Inter Milan was part of the Belgian team that finished third in Russia
- Lukaku impressed in Italy with 23 goals from 35 games for Inter
Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku stated that he has been ‘a man with a mission’ since Belgium’s third place at the 2018 World Cup.
The 27-year-old became the most expensive signing of the Nerazzurri last summer when he signed a deal of around £ 80 million from Manchester United and ran aground in Italy.
He was also part of the Belgian national team that narrowly missed World Cup glory in 2018, but said disappointment spurred him on in his career.

“I am a man with a mission,” Lukaku told Bleacher Report.
“The disappointment that you got out of the World Cup was enormous, in part because we came close to an incredible goal for a national team of just 11 million people.
‘It touched me. When I moved to Inter, I had all this energy in me, which had grown in the meantime.
He’s certainly impressed since joining Inter Milan last summer for £ 80 million with 23 goals
“And I was a man on a mission. I said to myself, “Okay, this is me, let’s go.”
Lukaku has certainly been impressive since moving to Serie A with 23 goals in 35 games for Antonio Conte’s Inter side.
The Belgian has entered into a formidable partnership with Lautaro Martinez in the attack for Inter Milan this season, but his Argentinian teammate can move to Barcelona in the next transfer window.
