Romelu Lukaku has admitted that he finds it really hard living in self-isolation. Italy was put into lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic and all sport were halted and the football players are under quarantine.
Serie A has been suspended until April 3 at earliest due to the continuous increase of the cases of the respiratory disease, which led to almost 3,500 deaths cases just in Italy.
Lukaku has been prevented from seeing his son, mother and brother and was put in quarantine last week as a precaution from the virus.
In interview with Arsenal legend Ian Wright the Belgian admits that this experience has left him feeling humbled.
"You have to be very careful because you might touch somebody that might have the virus," said the 26-year-old Inter Milan striker in an interview on Ian Wright's YouTube channel.
"My mum has diabetes and they have a higher risk to get into trouble when they get it. So I cannot even go home and touch her.
“I just miss the regular life. Being with my mum, being with my son; even being with my brother. It’s bad because you can’t have contact anymore with another human being. I miss training, I miss playing in front of fans – now, you start appreciating what you have.”
Lukaku has joined the Italian club in the last summer transfer window for €80 million.
On his debut he scored the third goal in a 4–0 home win, which made him the third Belgian to score for Inter in Serie A, after Enzo Scifo and Radja Nainggolan.
Romelu Lukaku has scored 23 goals in 35 outings for Inter Milan in this campaign.
