Romelu Lukaku filmed telling Inter Milan teammate, 'F*** you, son of a b***h!' in angry on-pitch outburst
| Last updated
Romelu Lukaku aimed an angry outburst at Inter Milan teammate Nicolo Barella during his side's 0-0 draw with Sampdoria on Monday night.
Inter now find themselves 15 points behind league leaders Napoli after the draw and frustrations set in for Lukaku in the first half.
There were just 40 minutes on the clock when the Belgian striker lost it with Barella. Inter lost the ball cheaply in midfield and Barella let his feelings be known by hoisting his arms in the air.
It's not exactly a new action from the Italy international, but Lukaku was not having it whatsoever and let him know about it.
He was filmed shouting at his colleague and wagging his finger in his direction. As per Football Italia, Lukaku put Barella put him in his place and said, “Don’t do that, enough with these arms! Do not do that! It’s not good, it’s insulting, now stop!”
Barella appear to fire back at the former Chelsea and Manchester United man but that only made him angrier and he is believed to have screamed, “F*** you, son of a b***h!”

The exchange garnered reaction aplenty online, though a fair few felt Lukaku was in the right to call out Barella.
One wrote: "Good stuff from Lukaku to tell barella off. No need to be so angry for no reason. Keep calm and play."
A second concurred: "It’s about time someone told Barella about his arm throwing."
Another added: "Most useful thing Lukaku did all season, someone had to tell Barella that."
A fourth said: "Good from Lukaku, finally someone said it to Barella."
A fifth opined: "Lukaku is a good teammate for what he did to Barella."
Manager Simone Inzaghi addressed the bust-up after the game and while he didn't like what he saw, he confirmed the pair had made up.
"These things happen on the pitch, they shouldn’t happen and I don’t like to see them, but they were sat together during the break and are great friends. Obviously, these are incidents I don’t want to see.”
