Former Liverpool star Steve Nicol has branded Romelu Lukaku as brainless following his comments about his role under Thomas Tuchel.
Lukaku admitted he was ‘not happy’ with his role under Tuchel and wanted to go back to Inter in the near future.
“It’s kind of brainless isn’t it. It’s some really brainless things to say,” Nicol told ESPN FC.
“Listen whenever you get pulled up when you’ve slaughtered somebody then you will start to spin it the other way and say ‘oh I didn’t mean that’.
“He’s basically criticised the manager saying that what he’s told them isn’t true. He doesn’t like the way they play.
“Who says that to the manager? And by the way, my heart is still at Inter. That’s exactly not what the fans want to hear. It’s brainless comments.”
