Even as Inter striker Romelu Lukaku’s Italy is under partial lockdown, Milan police crashed Lukaku’s 3am birthday bash at a hotel.
Italy is hard at work to stop the spread of coronavirus. Curfews there prohibit social gatherings between the hours of 10pm and 5am (CEST) to prevent community transmission of COVID-19.
Lukaku and a number of club colleagues seemingly ignored those regulations.
Lukaku scored in their Serie A outing against Roma, which they won 3-1 victory at San Siro yesterday.
Then, just hours after the victory Inter players celebrated his birthday at a hotel in the dead of the night.
And local police crashed Lukaku’s 3am birthday bash because they were flouting the curfews in place for their own safety.
Inter players are in hot water because those in attendance, the local authorities will sanction them for breaking Covid-19 rules.
Inter striker Romelu Lukaku turns 28 today but his midnight (and after) birthday celebrations on Wednesday evening breached Covid-19 protocols.
Local officers thus interrupted the Belgian striker, and some other Inter players, in their celebrations at a Milan hotel.
A police statement released on Thursday reads: “At 3am last night, in Milan, Police intervened in a hotel in the city centre, where in an events room there was the birthday party of Inter footballer Romelu Lukaku.”
“Another 23 people were identified, including some other Inter players and the hotel’s director that organised the event,” the statement specifies. “The director and the guests will be sanctioned for violating the Covid-19 rules.”
