- A day later, he was just a small part of a social media post celebrating 2022
Romelu Lukaku was reportedly ‘upset’ over a Chelsea tweet celebrating the New Year – after his image was just one small part of a montage of players.
Lukaku has left Stamford Bridge after a turbulent year back at the club, having joined Inter Milan for £98.5million last summer.
But the Belgian striker has flopped in his second stint at the club and is now back with the Italian giants on a £6.9 million loan after scoring just eight goals in 26 Premier League appearances last season.

The snub reportedly left Lukaku ‘upset’ for being relegated to a minor role in the tweet
Chelsea celebrated the new year with a tweet featuring a montage of players from their men’s and women’s teams, with the club’s more prominent stars at the top and as larger images.
However, Lukaku is barely visible in the image, almost at the bottom above the first zero of 2022.
According to the athleticLukaku was ‘upset at the apparent stupidity’, which came just a day after an explosive interview aired in which he publicly stated his unfortunate role at Chelsea, as well as a desire for a future return to Inter Milan.
Lukaku had said in an interview with Sky Sport Italia last December: “Physically I’m fine. But I am not happy with the situation at Chelsea. [Thomas] Tuchel has chosen to play with a different system.
An interview had been made public the day before in which he complained about the tactics of Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel (second from left), who was left furious
‘I’m not giving up, I’ll be professional. I’m not happy with the situation, but I’m professional – and I can’t give up now.”
“Now is the right time to share my feelings. I have always said that I have Inter in my heart: I know I will return to Inter, I really hope so. I am in love with Italy, this is the right time to talk and let people know what really happened.”
Tuchel was enraged by Lukaku’s interview and its timing just days before a clash with Premier League rivals Liverpool. The Belgian was dropped and was fined two weeks’ wages.
The report added that the Chelsea boss even gathered his players in training to warn them against giving such high-profile interviews without the club’s knowledge, although Chelsea denied that this ever happened.
Lukaku only returned to Chelsea last summer after arriving from Inter Milan for £98.5million
Lukaku is on the cusp of completing his move to the San Siro, where he was a big player after helping them win the league title in the 2020-21 season after undergoing a medical on Wednesday.
The former Manchester United striker was waved to supporters ahead of his medical check-up in Italy and admitted he was delighted to be back at a club where he felt he was wanted.
When asked what convinced him to return, he said: “The affection of the fans and my teammates, but also the opportunity to work with the coach.
But now he is back on loan at the club after just one season, waving to the fans before undergoing a medical with the Italian giants on Wednesday.
“I’ve been in touch with him all through last season. I think the coach is doing well with the team. I want to contribute and do good for this club.
‘It’s like coming home. I think my family and I had a really good time in Milan, thanks to the people, the fans and my teammates. From the first day I arrived here everyone has helped me a lot, I am very happy.
“I didn’t even leave home when I went to England, which shows how happy I am to be back here. Now I just want to see the guys on the field.”
