Romelu Lukaku SLAMED by fans who say striker is ‘done’ after missing golden chance in Inter Milan’s Champions League final loss to Man City
Romelu Lukaku has been heavily criticized online after Inter Milan’s poor performance in the Champions League final.
Man City won the final 1-0 thanks to an excellent goal from Rodri, completing a hat-trick for Pep Guardiola’s side after also winning the Premier League and FA Cup.
The striker, who is on loan from Chelsea, replaced Edin Dzeko and looked menacing at times, but shot wide late in the game when he would have been better off in front of goal.
One fan felt Lukaku should have scored ‘two or three times’ after also heading a ball towards the blocked goal from close range.
Inter were widely expected to try to extend the Belgium international’s stay at the San Siro after scoring 77 goals for the club in two spells, but fans seemed less enthusiastic after Saturday’s performance.

Rodri scored the game’s only goal with a classy strike but later revealed the feeling he had played ‘s***’ in the first half.
Fans did not hesitate to criticize the Belgian striker on Twitter
Other supporters felt the Belgium international was a “finished player” and that his late loss ended their hopes of a fourth European Cup.
City’s victory means they have now equaled rivals Man United in lifting the three biggest trophies in a season.
It also means Manchester is only the second story in Europe, after Milan, to have two Champions League-winning clubs.
Despite picking up an emphatic winner after the break, Rodri felt he had played ‘s***’ in the first half and begged the manager to stay.
It ended up being a great night for the Spaniard, although team-mate Kevin De Bruyne had less of an impact after being substituted through injury in the first half.
