Lukaku Penalized For Spreading False Information About Covid-19

Inter internal discipline, Romelu Lukaku, after the striker shared most of the players of the team had symptoms of Covid-19.

A day after Lukaku revealed on Instagram that 23 of 25 Inter players coughed and had a high fever in January but were not tested, the Italian team denied the information. The team representative described the information Lukaku presented as inaccurate and misleading. According to Italian media, Lukaku was fined internally for the incident. 

Only four Inter players got the flu in January, according to information corrected by Inter representatives, including Stefan De Vrij, Milan Skriniar, Danilo D'Ambrosio and Alessandro Bastoni. Bastoni had to rest until mid-February, while the other three players soon recovered.

Skriniar is a Lukaku who said he had to leave the field because he was about to faint in the 1-1 draw with Cagliari on January 26. That match, coach Antonio Conte did not attend the press conference, but not because he was ill but because he was dissatisfied with the referee.

Lukaku came to Inter from Man Utd for $ 93 million last summer, and integrated well with 17 goals in 25 Serie A matches this season. Inter management, according to Sports Mail , said that the information Lukaku shared came from his bewilderment due to long-term isolation. 

Italy did not detect any nCoV infections until February 21. After two months, Pasta had 187,327 positive cases and 25,085 deaths from Covid-19, the second highest in the world. No Inter player has been identified with nCoV infection.
