The Belgian has explained why he unable to reach his full potential at Old Trafford and how he has silenced his doubters at San Siro

Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has hit back at critics who branded him "lazy" and "slow" during his time at Manchester United.

United forked out £45 million ($58m) to sign Lukaku from Everton in the summer of 2017, having seen him hit 87 goals in 166 appearances for the Toffees.

The Belgium international established himself as one of the most deadly forwards in the Premier League during his three-year spell at Goodison Park, and made a bright start to life at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian placed his belief in Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to lead the line ahead of Lukaku, while promoting academy graduate Mason Greenwood into a senior role.

The 27-year-old was ultimately sold to Inter for £74 million ($96m) last summer, where he has since rediscovered his best form to help Antonio Conte's side fight for silverware across multiple fronts.

Lukaku already has 37 goals to his name in a Nerazzurri shirt, and the ex-United frontman believes his talents are appreciated far more in Italy than they ever were in England.

The Belgian insists he hasn't changed his game in Serie A, but has been able to express himself more freely without detractors jumping on his back at every possible opportunity.

"A year ago, when I was in England, I was 'lazy, I didn't run, I didn't do this and that'," Lukaku told The Times.

"Here, they call me the hardest worker in the room. If you look at me playing here and there, I mean, there are improvements but the [same] Rom is still there.

"If you look at me now you see a different outcome, you see the full person, you see the full potential. You see what I could have been doing in England.

"They will call me slow and I'm like, 'slow? Me, slow? I cannot keep up with the fast pace game of Man Utd?

"There were too many little things where I thought: this is not right. If you call me slow I would not score a goal like I scored the second against Shakhtar Donetsk in the [Europa League] semi-final.

"If I was slow I would not have got the penalty like I did against Sevilla in the final. That's two years after.

"Are you going to say me at 27 is faster than I was at 25? That's what I'm trying to say. It's just little things. I was like, you know what? Eff this. I'm out."
