‘Lukaku Not World Class’

Highly-rated manager Fabio Capello has admitted he isn’t convinced Inter Milan gotten themselves the imposing striker they need in Romelu Lukaku.

The former Juventus and AC Milan gaffer said the the Belgian according to him wasn’t a world class player and would only pass for a good player.

The Nerazzuris coughed out £75million to bring Big Rom to San Siro from Old Trafford during the just concluded summer transfer window.

Lukaku who appears to have settled well in the Serie A has already found the net twice in as many appearances.

Irrespective of that fact, Capello doesn’t think the Belgium International belongs to that top echelon of strikers in the footballing circle.

Although, the striker offers a lot in pace, power and threat in the final third, Capello believes the striker is only a bit above average.

In his statement with Radio Deejay, the former AC Milan boss said:

“Lukaku is a good player with good movement. He scored two goals, one was a penalty and the other an error from the goalkeeper.

“He is of use on the field, but is not world class.”

Big Rom wasn’t the only player to make a move to Italy or Inter Milan in particular.

Alexis Sanchez also decided to pitch his tent with the Nerazzuris on a season-long loan as he looks to rediscover his form after a trying spell at Old Trafford.

Capello is however adamant that Sanchez would soon be back to his form

“Sanchez has quality and in some areas of the field, he can make the difference, if he wants to.

“It’s a little like what Franck Ribery did for Fiorentina when he came off the bench against Napoli, he can use his pace.”

Inter Milan sit atop the Serie A standings with six points and as many goals, but the Biaconeris remain hot on their heels.
