Conte

Romelu Lukaku described Inter coach Antonio Conte as a team player after rushing to the bench to celebrate a goal with his boss in the Nerazzurri’s 4-3 victory at Sassuolo.

Conte called for Lukaku to “train more” after Inter lost two consecutive matches going into the international break, and the former Manchester Untied striker underlined his commitment to meet his coach’s demands after netting a brace at MAPEI Stadium.

Belgium international Lukaku, who scored twice in his country’s win over San Marino 10 days earlier, told DAZN: “It ought to have been over at 4-1.

“We did everything right in the first half, should have scored more in the second. Once it goes to 3-1 and 4-1, it ought to be over.

“The positive we take is that we got the three points, but we need to defend better than that. I try to help the team throughout the game and am happy for the side, because it was very important to get this win.”
