Inter Milan are apparently full of grudges against their former star Romelu Lukaku following his move to Chelsea as they defaced another mural of the Belgium international who joined the Bridge for £97.5million
Supporters are furious at the player and their own club for allowing the star forward – who scored 30 goals last season as the Nerazzuri won their first Serie A title in 11 years – to leave especially after both the player and the Italian side claimed the Belgian would be staying earlier this summer.
The latest defaced mural scribbles out part of the Belgian striker’s face and has ‘sell out traitor’ written in Italian.
Originally the mural depicted Lukaku clashing heads with former Manchester United team-mate and AC Milan rival Zlatan Ibrahimovic during a Milan derby clash last season.
Ibrahimovic – who also played for Inter Milan earlier in his career – is not defaced in the graffiti on the mural.
It comes after a mural painted for their Serie A title success was defaced shortly before his move to Chelsea was confirmed.
The mural showed Lukaku pointing two fingers in the air towards the Inter Milan badge and the Italian flag, and most of the phrase ‘Dear Milano, you’re welcome’ has been blocked out with black paint, barring the word ‘Milano’.
Inter Milan’s main ultra-group in the Curva Nord are responsible for the vandalism of the mural, created for the Belgian when he first joined the club in 2019 from Manchester United.
And a message on the group’s Facebook page to the departing Belgian striker read: ‘Dear Lukaku, we expected more honest and transparent behaviour from you.
‘But, despite the fact we protected you like a son, like one of us, you too proved yourself to be just like all the rest, going to your knees for money. We wish you the best, even if greed doesn’t always pay.’
Lukaku since the confirmation of his move to Chelsea, posted a statement on his social media focusing on the positives of his ‘beautiful story’ at Inter Milan.
