Romelu Lukaku Aims 'King Of Milan' Tweet At Zlatan Ibrahimovic After Inter Milan Become Serie A Champions

It hasn't take long for Romelu Lukaku to celebrate Inter Milan's first Serie A title in 11 years at the weekend, and he's appeared to aim a "King of Milan" dig at old rival Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Back in January, both Ibrahimovic and Lukaku were far from pleasant about each other during a fiesty Milan Derby.

In one incident, the Belgian appeared to call his former Manchester United teammate "a son of a b***h" before saying "f**k you and your wife" towards the Swede.

They then butted heads and exchanged insults in the Coppa Italia quarter final tie.

Just months earlier, Ibrahimovic was very clear about his status in Italy. "Milan never had a king," he said. "They have a God."

Never lacking confidence about his own ability, Ibrahimovic certainly backs up his claims most of the time but in February's eagerly-anticipated Milan Derby, the Swede was made to eat his words by a man in the form of his life.

Romelu Lukaku played a pivotal part in Inter Milan's 3-0 win against AC and, after providing Lautaro Martinez with an assist for their opening goal of the game, he topped off a fine performance with a finish of the very highest quality.

Lukaku was certainly animated in his celebrations after netting Inter's third. He ran over to the corner flag, pointed to his chest and shouted ""Dio, diooo!" in relation to his infamous bust-up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

And months later, after Inter Milan secured the Serie A title, Lukaku appeared to refer to Zlatan's claim about being the king of Milan with his own statement. "The real god has crowned the king!" he wrote. "Now bow down. King of Milano."

Lukaku also posted the following on Twitter earlier on Monday afternoon. "Champions! Been a long road for us as a team but we did it in the end!" he said. "Thank you to all inter fans all over the world! Let's enjoy this moment!"

The Italian side were officially crowned champions after second-placed Atalanta could only pick up a point against Sassuolo.

It has been a successful season under Antonio Conte and that man Lukaku has been key, notching 27 goals and 9 assists.
