Lukaku: When I knew Inter Milan would win Scudetto

Romelu Lukaku has hailed the fighting qualities of Inter Milan teammates.

The striker says victories against their direct rivals have been key to this season's Scudetto triumph.

“The path towards the Scudetto began against Sassuolo," Lukaku told DAZN. “We changed the way we played, and we were more compact.

“Lautaro [Martinez] and Alexis [Sanchez] played, I was on the bench. But I immediately understood that the team were united.

“The games against Milan, Atalanta and Lazio were still waiting for us. Compared to last year, we have won more direct clashes.

“We have shown that we are stronger. After the win against Atalanta, I said to myself: 'OK, we are really there for the Scudetto'."
