Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku were involved in a scuffle at the end of the first half of Inter-Milan with the Inter forward who was physically restrained by his teammates.
The attackers went head to head before the break and according to Rai Sport it was Ibrahimovic who provoked Lukaku in the first place.
The 27-year-old didn’t take it well and confronted the Swede going face to face with him.
Inter sources quoted by Rai say their striker was “heavily insulted” by the Swede.
Lukaku apparently told Ibra “stop laughing at me” while Ibra hit back: “Come on then, let’s go” while grinning.
The referee Paolo Valeri booked both of them, but somehow it was not enough to stop the dispute.
When the match official blew the whistle for the half time break, Ibra quickly made his way into the tunnel, while Lukaku was physically restrained by his teammates.
The Belgian continued insulting Ibra while his teammates were trying to stop him.
