AC Milan forward Ibrahimovic and Inter striker Lukaku were involved in a number of incidents on the pitch – before Ibrahimovic was eventually sent off.Inter won the match 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Christian Eriksen.
“Zlatan… racist?” wrote Pogba on Twitter.“He loves me too much so he’s the last person I’d think of as racist! Come on, don’t joke with that one!”
This was called racist by some, but Ibrahimovic was referencing a specific quote from a majority shareholder at Everton, who claimed Lukaku had turned down a new contract after a message from his mother who had visited a voodoo practitioner.
Lukaku has always denied this story and even threatened to sue, but it was in the headlines and Ibrahimovic evidently read it.
