Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku scored on his Inter Milan debut as new coach Antonio Conte’s reign got off to a perfect start with a 4-0 win over promoted Lecce on Monday night.
“There was a spark, but now we must become dynamite,” said Conte as he begins his campaign to topple eight-time holders Juventus.
Lukaku – a €65 million (US$73 million) summer signing from Manchester United – scored the third goal on the hour mark at the San Siro.
A blunder by Lecce goalkeeper Gabriel parried the ball into the path of Lautaro Martinez allowing Lukaku to finish off.
The 26-year-old turned and took a bow in front of the jubilant Inter fans among the 65,000 crowd.
“Lukaku entered the world of Inter in the best way, with great humility,” said Conte.
