Romelu Lukaku has given an explosive interview in regards to his current feelings at Chelsea

Despite hitting form recently, much of his first season back at Stamford Bridge after a mega-money move from Inter Milan has been frustrating. 

Indeed, injury and Covid problems have undermined his progress in the team and hopes of winning the Premier League now look distant. 

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, the Belgian international admitted he was “not happy” with how he was being used by Thomas Tuchel

"Physically I’m fine, even better than before.

"After two years in Italy, in which I worked a lot at Inter with trainers and nutritionists, I am physically fine.

"But I’m not happy with the situation, this is normal. I think the coach has chosen to play with another system, I just have to not give up and continue to work and be a professional.

"I am not happy with the situation, but I am a worker and I must not give up."

Despite his comments, PA understands the interview was conducted several weeks ago and Lukaku has since talked through his differences with the manager.

Lukaku was a sensation in his two seasons at Inter after leaving Manchester United in August 2019.

The 28-year-old scored 64 goals in 95 appearances and last season helped Inter to a first Serie A title since 2010.

Lukaku said: "How I left Inter, how I communicated with the fans, this bothers me because it is not the right time now, but even when I left it was not the right time.

"Now I think it is right to speak because I have always said that I have Inter in my heart, I will return to play there, I really hope so.

"I am in love with Italy, this is rightly the time to talk and let people know what really happened without talking badly about people because I am not like that.

"I want to say a big apology to the Inter fans because I think the way I left should have been different.

"I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more."
