Although Inter Milan won the derby with a 2-1 win, thanks to Eriksen’s late goal, AC Milan forward Ibrahimovic and Inter Milan striker Lukaku were involved in several incidents on the pitch before Ibra was eventually sent off.

The 39-year-old Ibrahimovic placed AC Milan in front in the 31st minute. But, he was then booked for his part in a head-to-head clash with Lukaku who had to be pulled away as he tried to confront the Swede when the players left the field at halftime.

This was one of the several clashes between the players. The pitchside microphones picked up Ibrahimovic’s voice saying, “go do your voodoo” to Lukaku. That was an apparent reference to claims made in 2018 by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri that the Belgium striker opted to leave the club after receiving a “voodoo message”. These claims led Lukaku to seek legal advice.

Also, Ibrahimovic called Lukaku a “little donkey”.

Also, Lukaku was caught on camera swearing at Ibrahimovic include lude references to Ibrahimovic’s wife and mother.

Ibra was then dismissed in 13 minutes into the second half for a foul on former Manchester City defender Aleksander Kolarov.

Lukaku got the equalizer from the spot before the late winner from Christian Eriksen.

What Happens Next?

There have been no official comments from either club about the clashes. It is understood Ibrahimovic addressed his team-mates in the dressing room after the match to insist there was no racist intention to any of his words with Lukaku.

The Italian Football Federation was discussing the matter on Wednesday and an update is expected on Friday.
