Still hurt by the Belgian Romelu Lukaku’s departure to Chelsea, a year ago, the organized Inter Milan fan, Corva Nord, published an official memo with the “rules” on how fans in the northern sector of the San Siro should act in relation to the player, Who will return to the Italian club?.

One point of the organization’s code of conduct says that no fan should wear Curva Nord scarves or stickers bearing the player’s name.
An excerpt from the statement reads, “He had our support and was treated like a king, and now he’s a player like the others.”
Lukaku led Inter Milan to the Italian league title in the 2020/21 season, and was named the best player in the competition, but he surprised the fans when he left the club for Chelsea, where he sold for 115 million euros.
After a year without being able to establish himself in the starting line-up, Lukaku agrees to return on loan to Inter, at a cost of eight million euros, without an acquisition clause at the end of the season.
With the return of the Belgian imminent, Corva Nord decided to publicly show her position. Although Lukaku’s departure to Chelsea continues to be seen as a “betrayal” and its members have prevented him from welcoming him as an idol, the organized crowd promises not to boo him and acknowledge his support individually depending on his performances on the pitch.
“Kerve will support Inter and will not boo the player (despite his behavior a year ago). What will happen to him in the future must be overcome with humility and sweat. We want to make it clear that we will never boo him if he is sweating on the Inter shirt again”, as stated in the statement.
