The Napoli substitutes couldn’t help but laugh at Roemlu Lukaku after his awful touch sent the ball flying out of play.
Despite being an elite footballer and breaking transfer records multiple times, Lukaku’s touch has been comically bad for years now.
The Inter striker has barely featured for his side this campaign, playing in only five Serie A games and only managing to score once.
After a horrific display for Belgium in the World Cup, Lukaku would’ve been hoping to redeem himself at his club but that also has gone comically wrong.
In a crucial game against Napoli on Thursday, the 29-year-old miss controlled the ball and sent it spinning out of play.
Something which the Napoli bench found very amusing.

It is clear that Lukaku is still rusty after his long spell on the sideline due to an injury.
Luckily for Inter, their other striker stepped up to the plate when they needed him the most. Edin Džeko in typical fashion got his head onto the end of a tantalising Federico Dimarco cross, scoring the only goal of the game to secure all three points for his side.
This is the first time Napoli has lost a game all season after an incredible start which saw them win 13 and draw twice.
It is uncertain where Lukaku’s future lies, he is on loan from Chelsea and has sworn fielty to Inter but hasn’t been able to replicate his title-winning form so far.
