Ibra and Lukaku accused of unsportsmanlike conduct

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been cleared of racism allegations, but both he and Romelu Lukaku have been accused of ‘unsportsmanlike conduct.’

The Milan and Inter strikers clashed in a Coppa Italia derby on January 26.

Ibrahimovic provoked Lukaku, telling him to call his mother and do his ‘voodoo sh…’

Lukaku reacted and both strikers were booked, but Ibra’s words were not considered racist by the investigators.

As per Calciomercato.com and La Gazzetta dello Sport, both strikers were accused of unsportsmanlike conduct by the FIGC, with objective responsibility from the clubs, which means that while the clubs are responsible for their players’ actions, they won’t be punished for it either.

Both players will be deferred fo the FIGC, but they can settle a reduced sanction, as provided by the Sports Justice Code.
