(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) INTER MILAN HEAD COACH, ANTONIO CONTE, ON ROMELU LUKAKU'S ABSENCE, SAYING: "There is no (Romelu) Lukaku.

He didn't leave with us because he had a little problem with his quadriceps.

It's a situation that has been going on for a few days, about 10 days, but he kept lamenting about this problem, so we did some medical tests, negative (no problem), but the player still kept lamenting about this pain so we preferred not to take any risks.

I repeat, we need to respect the player's sensations and it had been already 10 days that he was having these problems." STORY: Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out of Wednesday's (October 2) Champions League group stage clash at Barcelona due to a thigh injury, manager Antonio Conte said on Tuesday (October 1).

Lukaku, who was signed for around 80 million euros from
