Lukaku is at the level of Lewandowski and Benzema - Belgium legend

Tue 27 April 2021 | 9:12

Former Belgium star Enzo Scifo, who has a history of playing for Inter, believes the Nerazzurri striker Romelu Lukaku is among elite players like Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema.

Scifo has told 

Gazzetta dello Sport

: "

To think that at the time (2019) he was heavily criticised here. He was accused of lacking technique and being wasteful in front of goal, but I always knew he was a star due to his power and how he uses his left foot.

"He had to come to Italy to improve himself and luckily for him it happened, in a strong team and with a demanding coach. 

"Find me another player as decisive as him. I knew he would score 30 goals a season.

"Conte was the right man at the right time for his maturity. He saw him, wanted him and immediately said, ‘he is my man.’ He could not have found a better coach and vice versa.

"For me he is at the level of Haaland, Lewandowski and Benzema. If Belgium win anything, they owe it to him.

"His strength is always knowing how to react to difficult moments, always looking for the next goal. Now he is in top form."
