Under Roberto Martinez at Everton and recently with Belgium national team, the player has been outstanding, qualifying his side for the Nations League finals having also scored five goals in six appearances in for Inter Milan so far.
According to Martinez, he is happy with Lukaku's progress of how he is able to manage the good and bad times.
“My relationship with Romelu was from a young player when he came to Everton on loan,” he told talkSPORTS.
“Then we made a massive effort to get him on a permanent basis and he was the transfer record at that time.
“You can see the player going through phases, good moments, bad moments, but what we’ve seen with Romelu is he’s never lost his outstanding quality which is scoring goals.
“Now we’ve seen a real maturity in his play.
“The time he had at Manchester United, he was so desperate to win trophies and he took a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and probably took a lot of blame, in my eyes, very unfairly.”
