Ivan Cordoba claims that Manchester United ‘did not realize’ Romelu Lukaku’s ability though he hopes that James Rodriguez will also transfer to Inter. Nerazzurri’s legend has spoken to the Sportsmail Daily Mail about the positive impact stars like Lukaku and Ashley Young created in San Siro.”Lukaku is an exceptional player.
Manchester United did not understand the potential of the player and has been bad for him in his last season. In my view, Lukaku is proving everybody is a champion, “Cordoba said.” He’s driven and he’s been greatly strengthened by the Premier League. I met him in the changing rooms: he’s a good person. It’s a shame that he’s been sold by Manchester United but I’m glad Inter bought him.
At Inter.”Eriksen and Young, Antonio Conte was fundamental to his form, they are excellent players and will give Inter determination and energy. I am glad that they have chosen Inter.”James Rodriguez has been linked repeatedly to a move to Series A for Napoli, Juventus or Inter.
“James Rodriguez is to us Colombians the best player. It is up to him-he’s got everything he wants to do well. James is already on one of Real Madrid’s best teams but the Premier League will be a perfect choice.
Those who buy him would make an excellent choice.”I expect, selfishly, to see him at my Inter in Italy. I hope he will one day replace me at the San as a Colombian footballer
For Inter, Lukaku had scored 17 goals in 25 Series A appearances in an impressive way. However, in terms of competition, the Premier League and Italian top-flight aren’t quite the same as the Belgian was always bullied into vanishing at United.
