Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi expects that striker Romelu Lukaku will be back in action after the international break as he recovers from the thigh strain that has kept him out the last few matches.
Speaking in a press conference after the Nerazzurri’s Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen, as reported by FCInterNews, the coach updated on the Belgian’s fitness, whilst he also praised defender Francesco Acerbi for his debut at the heart of the Inter defense.
Lukaku made his last appearance for the Nerazzurri in their loss to Lazio in Serie A last month, and has been out ever since as he recovers from a thigh strain.
The team has not rushed the 29-year-old back, although there has been some speculation that he could already be ready in time to play against Udinese in Inter’s final Serie A match before the international break at the end of the month.
Right now, Edin Dzeko has been filling in for the Belgian, and Inzaghi said that “Edin was good, as all his teammates were, I need everyone to be at their best in defense, midfield, and in attack.”
“After the break Lukaku will return, and then from match to match I’ll make my decisions as to who the starting pair will be in attack,” he added.
Of the win over Plzen, Inzaghi said that “We’re happy, because we knew that the opponent were not to be underestimated. We know the record of Italian teams here in Plzen. The guys did well, they remained focused and I congratulated them in the locker room.”
