Belgian football star Romelu Lukaku has explained that he did not talk to anyone for four days after Inter Milan defeat against Spanish side Sevilla in the Europa League final.
Romelu Lukaku scored the own goal which condemned his side Inter Milan to a 3-2 defeat against Sevilla in the Europa League encounter.
Lukaku's night started perfectly as he opened the scoring with a penalty to the delight of Inter gaffer Antonio Conte who was prepared to win the title.
The spot-kick was his 34th goal of the season equalling the club record set by Ronaldo Nazario 22-years ago.
After the final whistle in the encounter, Romelu Lukaku refused to collect his medal as he went straight into the changing room in sadness.
“It was a very difficult moment for me. I didn’t speak for four days after the game but one day I woke up and gave myself a reason.
“In the past season we didn’t win the league by one point, we lost the semifinal of the Coppa Italia because we didn’t score a goal and then the Europa League final finished 3-2.
“These things happen. Only by suffering you improve. Victory is fatigue, it is character, it is an analysis of one’s limits but it is combativeness, it is desire for redemption and success. You can lose, but only to learn how to win,'' Lukaku told Gazzetta dello Sport.
