Capello: Inter Milan striker Lukaku NOT world class

Former England coach Fabio Capello isn't convinced by Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.

Inter won both matches with the former Manchester United striker Lukaku on target against Lecce and Cagliari.

“Lukaku is a good player with good movement. He scored two goals, one was a penalty and the other an error from the goalkeeper. He is of use on the field, but is not world class," said Capello.

The Nerazzurri are expected to give Alexis Sanchez his debut next weekend.

“Sanchez has quality and in some areas of the field, he can make the difference, if he wants to. It's a little like what Franck Ribery did for Fiorentina when he came off the bench against Napoli, he can use his pace."
