Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has shed light upon what Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo told him about Italy’s domestic league –Serie A before he decided to move to Italy from Premier League giants Manchester United. It is worth highlighting that Lukaku had made a €65 million-worth move to Inter Milan in the summer transfer window 2019.
The 26-year-old, who has netted 12 goals in 17 Serie A matches stated that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner told him that Serie A is perhaps one of the most difficult leagues to score goals in the world. Ronaldo reportedly labelled Serie A the ‘hardest defensive league.’
“He [Ronaldo] told me this is the hardest defensive League in the world,” Lukaku told New York Times.
The Belgian striker added that if Ronaldo felt it was the toughest place, then it must be since CR7 has scored goals everywhere. Ronaldo added that though the Premier League is more intense in Italy, it is about the pattern of play in Italy.
“He said he has scored goals everywhere, but this was the toughest place to do it, and if Cristiano Ronaldo think it’s difficult, then it must be really difficult.
“It’s harder than England. The football is more intense there, but here everything is pattern of play,” he added.
