Inter Milan's Romelu Lukaku

Leeds [UK], Nov 16 : Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku said he knew that he would have to deal with racial abuse after joining Inter Milan.

Lukaku joined the Serie A club from Manchester United this year.

“I knew that sooner or later it would happen,” quoted Lukaku as saying.

“I was ready for it, because before coming here I spoke with some friends who played in Serie A and they warned me about it,” he added.

The 26-year-old was subjected to racial abuse by the crowd during his club’s 2-1 win over Cagliari in September.

Lukaku then urged UEFA to act against racism.

“At Cagliari it was a difficult moment. Serie A and UEFA had to do more. UEFA must act. We can promote a ‘No To Racism’ campaign, but if we do nothing to counter this phenomenon, it makes no sense,” he said.

Belgium will take on Russia in the UEFA EURO qualifier today.
