Romelu Lukaku Fears '23 Out Of 25 Inter Milan Players' Suffered From Coronavirus Symptoms In January

Romelu Lukaku Fears '23 Out Of 25 Inter Milan Players' Suffered From Coronavirus Symptoms In January

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku fears that '23 out of 25' players in their first team squad suffered from coronavirus symptoms in January, but were not tested.

In a recent Instagram live with Belgian TV, the 26-year-old opened up about the shocking revelations.

Lukaku revealed that teammate Milan Skriniar was so ill that he almost fainted on the pitch during a Serie A game against Cagliari, where he was hauled off after 17 minutes on January 26.

And the striker spoke in more detail about how sick the squad was earlier this year.

"We had a week off in January, we returned to work and I swear that 23 out of 25 players were ill. I am not kidding," he said.

"We played against Radja Nainggolan's Cagliari and after about 25 minutes, one of our defenders [Skriniar] had to leave the pitch. He could not continue and almost fainted.

"Everyone was coughing and had a fever. When I was warming up, I felt a lot hotter than usual. I hadn't suffered from a fever in years.

"After the game there was a planned dinner with guests from Puma, but I thanked them and went straight to bed. We never did the Covid-19 tests at that moment, so we'll never know for sure."

At the time, Italy's top league was suspended until at least April 3, and many wondered what will occur should the league not resume.
