'I should have been clearer' - Romelu Lukaku explains controversial interview

Chelsea ace has attempted to explain to fans what he was trying to say regarding former club Inter Milan.

Romelu Lukaku has apologised to Chelsea fans for his controversial recent interview, admitting he 'should have been clearer.'

Lukaku spoke to Sky Sport Italia last week and revealed his frustration with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel as well as his deep affection for former club Inter Milan.

It understandably provoked outrage at the Premier Legaue club and saw the Belgian dropped for the 2-2 draw against Liverpool.

Tuchel, though, says the issue has now been resolved, and Lukaku has issued an apology and an explanation to the fans via social media.

"I think I should have been much clearer in my message to be honest," said Lukaku.

"Because the interview was about saying goodbye to the Inter fans, it was not about trying to disrespect the (Chelsea) fans, the football club, the owner, my team-mates, the technical staff.

"Because they made a lot of efforts for me to come back here and I wanted to come back here. I was on a mission to come back since I left, so I totally understand the frustrations of the fans.

"But now it's on me to make sure my commitment is at 100 per cent and I will do that in every game.

"My club was Chelsea, everybody knows that from being 10 or 11 years old I said I wanted to play for Chelsea. There were clearly images when I came on my school trip that I said I wanted to play for Chelsea.

"So for me I came here when I was 18 it didn't go so well. Now I'm back at 28 in the prime years of my career - I can't really mess this up.

"At the end of the day, I always said I wanted to come here to be successful, that's why I signed a five-year deal. Chelsea's a club that's equal to success.

"All the players that come here are winning and I have a special passion for this club.

"And I want to achieve that also with this football club, I want to win here for many years, that's why I signed a five-year deal.

"And I want to make sure that I show my commitment in training every day and also the games for this football club."
