Inter Milan fans reject Romelu Lukaku’s message, destroy striker’s other mural at San Siro

Reports in Italy claim Inter fans are treating Romelu Lukaku’s message of farewell to them with disdain amid reports that some Nerazzurri supported have defaced another mural of the Chelsea striker at San Siro.

The Belgium international had promised a statement and it finally arrived this morning on Instagram, hoping the fans “understand” his decision to leave for Chelsea and assuring he will “remain an Interista forever.”

Supporters were unimpressed, particularly as the message came several days after he had left Milan, according to Football Italia.

Some accused him of using a ‘ghost writer’ to pen the statement, others accused him of just chasing money, especially during a time when Inter are struggling so badly for liquidity.

“Thank you for the two years, but you should’ve sent this ‘letter’ at least a second before making your Chelsea move official,” wrote one supporter.

Another pointed out it was like “receiving a message from your ex when you’ve already wiped her number from your phone.”

Considering he found the form of his life in Serie A and had been so badly criticised during his previous Premier League experiences, there was also a dire warning.

“We will always be Inter even without you, but now we’ll see if you will be Lukaku without us.”

Meanwhile, another Lukaku mural has been defaced outside San Siro after the Inter striker’s transfer to Chelsea, calling him a ‘sell-out traitor.’

The mural painted for the Scudetto success was already ruined when Nerazzurri supporters painted over the back of his shirt and all the words except for ‘Milano’ in the original message: ‘Dear Milano, you’re welcome.’

Now another mural has been destroyed, this time the one depicting Lukaku’s head-to-head clash with Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic during a Coppa Italia tie last season.

Lukaku’s face has been scrawled out, with the statement: ‘Sell-out traitor’ painted on.
