EPL: You’ll be in reserve at Inter Milan – Di Canio warns Chelsea star against leaving club

Former Juventus and West Ham forward, Paolo Di Canio, has warned Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku, against leaving the West London club.

Di Canio said that Lukaku would be on the bench at Inter Milan as he doesn’t have the ‘quality’ of Edin Dzeko, who has scored 14 goals so far this season for the Serie A giants.

Lukaku scored 64 goals in 96 games for Inter Milan before deciding to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2021.

The Belgium international has endured a frustrating first season at Chelsea, scoring just five goals in 17 Premier League games for Thomas Tuchel’s side so far.

The 28-year-old gave a controversial interview to Sky Sports Italia last December in which he suggested he was not happy at Chelsea and admitted he wants to return to Inter Milan in the near future.

But Di Canio believes Lukaku will not do well in the current Inter Milan team.

“He would be very expensive considering that he would be a reserve in this Inter side,” Di Canio told Sky Sport Italia.

“Inter have a different playing style, with more quality and a striker [Edin Dzeko] almost playing as an attacking midfielder. Lukaku doesn’t have this quality.”
