Romelu Lukaku is the most dominant forward in world football. Everyone knows that.
To achieve your level of strength and power, most of us would have to work a lot in the gym. However, not Lukaku.
In a recent Twitter Questions and answers, the Belgian revealed that he has not pressed for more than a decade. Even more incredible, he also claimed that the last time he tried it, when he was just 15 years old, he managed to lift a staggering 100kg. This is a lot.
His teenage herculean strength wasn’t the only thing that was addressed in the questions and answers. Lukaku went on to give his opinion on two of his former clubs, Manchester United and Chelsea.
He was first questioned by a user about his relationship with Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Solskjaer was in charge when the forward left United in 2019, leading some to suggest that there may have been a rift between the pair.
However, Lukaku quashed these claims and wrote, “He is doing very well. You should know that I love him as a manager and as a person and wish him well.”
Lukaku also spoke about his time at Stamford Bridge and said that he has nothing but love for the club that sold him to Everton in 2014.
“I was given the opportunity to come to the Premier League as a child. You can’t have everything in life and I’m fine with that. I’m glad that experience got me to where I am today.”
Lukaku then gave fans a taste of Antonio Conte’s intense training regiment at Inter.
“Training is actually a war zone. Our manager doesn’t play hahaha. He doesn’t like it when we hang on haha. I love it,” he wrote.
The training may be extreme, but it is clearly working for Lukaku. Since arriving in Milan, he has cemented his reputation as one of the best forwards in the world, forming a deadly partnership with Lautaro Martínez that should lead Inter to their first Serie A title since 2010.
The forward has clearly also enjoyed his time with the Nerazzurri. When asked by a United fan when he would be coming home, he replied that he was “already home” at the San Siro.
The feeling is mutual for Inter fans too, particularly after their recent performance at the Derby della Madonnina. Lukaku scored Inter’s third goal in the 3-0 win, a goal that was made even sweeter after his recent fight with Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
After fishing, he turned around and was heard yelling something. Some interpreted this as a message to Ibrahimovic, but Lukaku himself claimed that he doesn’t remember what he yelled, writing, “Man, I spoke a lot of adrenaline, I guess.”
