Zlatan Ibrahimovic Responds To Claims Of Racism After Romelu Lukaku Bust Up

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Responds To Claims Of Racism After Romelu Lukaku Bust Up

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has spoken out following his clash with Romelu Lukaku on Tuesday night, denying anything he said to the Inter player was racist.

Ibra's clash with Lukaku in the Coppa Italia quarter final between Inter and Milan was really the main talking point of the derby.

Just before half-time both men picked up yellow cards as they clashed on the pitch and went face-to-face with one another.

They continued to exchange insults as they went off the pitch, with the Inter man looking particularly perturbed. Some questioned if Lukaku's reaction was because the Swede said something racist and later it was reported Zlatan had said, "Call your mother, do your voodoo shi*," leading to more accusations of racism.

The 39-year-old has now taken to Twitter to break his silence on the matter and denied any racism.

It's likely that the Milan forward, who played with his rival at Old Trafford before moving to the MLS and eventually returning to Italy, was referencing what Everton major shareholder Farhad Moshiri said in 2018.

Talking about the former Everton player leaving the club, and doing everything to keep him at Goodison PArk, Moshiri claimed, "Then in the meeting Rom called his mother. He said he was on a pilgrimage in Africa or somewhere and he had a voodoo and he got the message that he needs to go to Chelsea."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Gives Testimony On Romelu Lukaku Racism Row To Italian Investigators

published at18 days ago

In typical fashion, the former PSG striker had to get a final dig in, even during a nice message, saying "We are all players some better than others."

Whilst the elder of the two rivals might have won far more in his career to date it was his opponent who had the last laugh on Tuesday.

Zlatan but Stefano Piolo's side ahead but the Swede got himself sent off before the hour mark, picking up a second yellow following his first booking from the argument.

Lukaku then equalised from the penalty spot, with a fiercely struck penalty, before Christian Eriksen scored the winning goal from a last minute free kick.

With Inter going through it was certainly the last laugh for the Nerazzurri but their rivals are still ahead in Serie A, by two points from their fellow San Siro side.

The two meet again in less than a month, this time in the league, in what could be a season defying game.

Will it be Lukaku or Zlatan who comes out on top next time?
