Belgium boss Roberto Martinez insisted that Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku is happy, free and focused ahead of his new challenge in Serie A.
The former Manchester United striker struggled in the 2018/19 Premier League before shifting to Inter for €65 million. He has now scored a goal in each of the two games at his new club.
Martinez believes Lukaku is more focused, fresh and happy after his move and is driven to do his best for the national team as well.
“This is the first time I have seen him free and happy. Going back to many camps I have not seen Rom so focused, so happy, so refreshed by the new challenge,” Martinez told reporters ahead of Belgium’s 2020 Euro qualifier against Scotland.
“I think he is now ready to face one of the biggest footballing chapters in his career with the Inter Milan move.
“And he is very driven to be as good as he can for the national team, so I have been very impressed with his happiness and the way he is looking forward to the football ahead.”
