Antonio Paganin slams Romelu Lukaku for recent comments

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is currently on loan at Italian club AS Roma, but his recent comments have drawn the ire of Antonio Paganin.

Romelu Lukaku recently hinted that he could reveal details regarding his failed move from Chelsea to Inter Milan that could shock many. Antonio Paganin has now hit out at the Belgian striker claiming (h/t FCInterNews) that he should look to reveal the details instead of dropping hints and causing controversy.

“I had appreciated the silence up until now,” he said before continuing, :The moment you say, ‘I will speak’, the respect that was there disappears from me. We are certainly missing something, but now either you speak or you shut up.”

Lukaku was heavily linked with a return to Inter Milan during the summer transfer window, but there were links with Juventus as well. Apparently, the Nerazzurri decided to pull out of a move to re-sign the 30-year-old because of his decision to speak to Juventus regarding a potential move.

The move to Juventus did not happen either, and Lukaku ended up joining AS Roma on loan for the remainder of the season.

The Belgian has been in fine form for the Italian club, scoring seven goals in eight matches across all competitions. He will be hoping to continue impressing at the capital club, and it remains to be seen whether they sign him permanently the season.

Lukaku is undoubtedly a top-class player on his day and he will be hoping to get his career back on track. It is evident that he does not have a future at Chelsea, and he will look to leave the Blues permanently at the end of the season. There have been rumours that he could cost £37 million, and it remains to be seen whether his suitors are willing to spend that kind of money on him.

It will be interesting to see if Lukaku decides to divulge the secrets behind his failed move to Inter Milan in the coming months. His remarks have certainly sparked controversy and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds over the next few months.
