Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has apologized to Inter Milan fans for signing Romelu Lukaku while talking about a possible Ballon d’Or win for Jorginho.
The blues most famous signing of the summer resulted in Lukaku ending his two year stint in Italy to make an emotional return to Stamford Bridge, almost a decade after starting his first tenure at the club when he arrived from Anderlecht as a teenager.
While not scoring a goal during that period – before joining Everton in 2014 – the Belgian ace has strong ties with the West London club and tried to make a £ 97.5million after a productive period in Serie A Return deal.
After a disappointing last appearance in the Premier League at Manchester United, the 28-year-old has already proven all doubters with a good start to life in English football as he has already scored four goals in all competitions this season.
After this brilliant start, his new boss Tuchel apologized to the former club of striker Inter for winning him from San Siro. The German insists that his new talisman became a “better player” during his time in Milan.
“I’m sorry to have displeased the Inter fans,” he told the Festival dello Sport.
“We needed a striker with these qualities and Romelu wanted to tie the thread that linked him to Chelsea as a kid. So we took the opportunity and are happy with him.
“Italy certainly made him grow and his experience at Inter made him an even better player.”
Another important man for the club right now is Italian midfielder Jorginho, who played a pivotal role in the club’s Champions League triumph last season before being equally impressive for his country to help them win at Euro 2020 help.
In such impressive performances, the former Napoli man won the coveted Ballon d’Or, which is awarded annually to the best player in the world. Tuchel is full of praise for the “fantastic” midfielder and his national coach Roberto Mancini.
“I’m not a big fan of single prizes. But I’m sure if I say he doesn’t deserve it, he’d be angry, ”he added.
“Jorginho wasn’t just fantastic with Italy. I liked everything about the success of Roberto Mancini and the Azzurri, it stole my eye: the attitude towards the attack, the unity, the atmosphere, the very high quality of the game.
“A tactically solid and well-prepared team, well positioned on the pitch, that is anything but natural because you don’t have time in the national team.”
