PREMIER - Tuchel to Inter Milan fans: I am sorry to have displeased you
Tuchel has apologized to Lukaku's old club Inter for removing him from the San Siro, claiming that his new talisman became a 'better player' during his time in Milan.
“I am sorry to have displeased the Inter fans,” he told Festival dello Sport.
“We needed a striker with those characteristics and Romelu wanted to tie the thread that tied him to Chelsea as a kid. So we took the opportunity and we are happy with him.
“Certainly, Italy made him grow further, his experience at Inter made him an even better player ”.
After a disappointing previous season in the Premier League with Manchester United, the 28-year-old has already proven any critics wrong with a strong start to life back in England, scoring four goals in all competitions for Chelsea so far this season.
