Italy is particularly affected by the covid-19 epidemic, the whole country is under quarantine. Romelu Lukaku, who has been locked up in his apartment in Milan for about nine days, is of course no exception.
The Inter striker only communicates with his relatives by video, an increasingly complicated situation for the striker: “Yesterday, I almost went crazy. I can’t go out, I can’t even go do shopping. I’ve been here for nine days now. It’s difficult, I miss my family, I miss playing, normal life basically, what we usually do in normal times, “said the Red Devil during from a video conversation with analyst and former English goalscorer Ian Wright.
Lukaku can count on the support of his club during this period of isolation: “Every day, my lunch is delivered to my home by a club employee, since each player follows a strict sports regime.”
Finally, the club ensures that each player keeps in shape: “Most of the players live in the center of Milan, in an apartment. So the club has delivered an exercise bike to everyone.”
Something to let off steam everyday while waiting.
