Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi expressed his happiness with the completion of his attacking force, and the way in which Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku harmonizes with the team, before the start of the new season in the Italian Football League.

Inzaghi told a news conference, before his team’s opening match against newly promoted Lecce, “Lukaku is doing well, he works well like the other attacking trio, he has been absent for a year, and he is trying to integrate in the best way, but he is not new to Inter, I am happy with him, and also with Eden Gekko.” Lautaro Martinez and Andrea Correa, and we chose to focus on these four forwards that I can count on.”
Inter missed the chance of winning their second consecutive Serie A title on the last day of last season, as rivals Milan won the title, but Inzaghi is happy with the new signings. We brought back Lukaku, and we signed great players such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Andre Onana, Raul Bellanova and Christian Aslani. Technical.”
Inzaghi also revealed that Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic could start against Lecce on Saturday, having regained full fitness, but defender Stefan de Vrij will be absent.
