I thought I would be a hero at Chelsea… now I'm angry and ready to prove everyone wrong with Inter, says Romelu Lukaku | The Sun

ROMELU LUKAKU is ready to use "anger" as motivation to return to top form.

The Belgian ditched Chelsea to return to Inter Milan on loan earlier this summer after flopping at Stamford Bridge following his £97.5m switch.

Lukaku, 29, grew determined to return to San Siro as last season wore on, and is now ready to remind people what he can do after being granted his wish.

He said: "The season at Chelsea gave me extra motivation to do even better than before.

"I think in one year everyone has forgotten about the things I am capable of doing on the pitch.

"That is a kind of anger that I have inside me. That now the team has it too, which didn’t win last year, all together we hope to do better and bring something home."

In Lukaku's last campaign at Inter he scored 24 Serie A goals on the way to winning the title.

While he slumped to just eight Prem goals last term, Inter missed out on defending their crown to rivals AC Milan.

On what went wrong for him at Stamford Bridge, Lukaku told DAZN: "So many things. I think before, when I left, I wanted to take revenge at Chelsea because when I was young it was my team for 11 years.

"I had the opportunity to go back there and thought I would be a hero, but that wasn’t the case.
