Romelu Lukaku takes a cheeky dig at Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Romelu Lukaku appeared to aim a cheeky dig at rival Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after scoring
a stunning goal for Inter in the Milan derby.
The pair clashed last month in the Coppa Italia, trading insults and both landing
themselves with suspensions during a fiery affair.
Romelu Lukaku played a pivotal part in Inter Milan’s 3-0 win against AC at the
San Siro on Sunday afternoon and, after providing Lautaro Martinez with an assist
for their opening goal of the game, he topped off a fine performance with a finish of
the very highest quality.
Lukaku was certainly animated in his celebrations after netting Inter’s third.
He ran over to the corner flag, pointed to his chest, and shouted “”Dio, diooo!”
in relation to his infamous bust-up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Remember that one?
in a direct reference to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who claimed last year that Milan had
no king but a God instead.
But others understood him to be saying ‘Io’, as part of the line ‘Me! I f****** told you’.
Whether that was a jibe back to his AC Milan nemesis will have to be confirmed by
Lukaku himself but, nevertheless, the Inter star certainly came out on top in the
personal duel between the pair on Sunday.
Having gone face to face with the Swede in their last encounter, he is now on a run of
scoring in five consecutive derbies – a record.
