‘It’s real work’ – Lukaku seems to take a swipe at Manchester United training

Romelu Lukaku seems to have taken a dig at Manchester United by revealing training at new club Inter Milan is ‘real work’.

The Belgian international has brought an end to his two year stay at Old Trafford this summer, the 26-year-old moving to the Italian giants in a £73m deal last week.

Lukaku had been linked with a move away from Manchester United after falling down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whilst he also angered the United boss by posting running statistics from one of the club’s training sessions on his social media.

The forward scored four times on his first appearance for his new side and has been adapting to Serie A, Lukaku discussing the differences between England and life at the San Siro.

Lukaku has now seemingly taken a swipe at his old club, suggesting training under new boss Antonio Conte at Inter is a step-up from his former side.

“It’s hard, man,” Lukaku told Otro. “It’s different. In England, it’s a lot of work, but here it’s real work.”
