Update: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku get match ban after heated confrontation in Milan derby (Updated: 2 years ago)


Footballers, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Romelu Lukaku have both received a one-match ban each following their heated confrontation in the Milan derby on Tuesday. 

The AC Milan and Inter Milan strikers nearly came to blows just before half-time at the San Siro Stadium during their Coppa Italia clash. 

Both players were issued a yellow card, with Ibrahimovic later being sent off the pitch for receiving a second booking.

As both were booked and pulled apart during the heated confrontation, Ibrahimovic can be heard yelling at Lukaku: 'Go do your voodoo s***, you little donkey.' 

Lukaku was also heard telling the AC Milan striker 'f*** you and your wife, you little b****' and 'you want to speak about my mother!?' as his Inter team-mates held him back.

The next day, Ibrahimovic was forced to address allegations that he used racist language on Romelu Lukaku during their derby clash, insisting that he isn't racist.

'In ZLATAN's world there is no place for RACISM,' he tweeted. 'We are all the same race - we are all equal!!' 

However, the Swede could not resist a jibe to who is the king of Milan, adding: 'We are all PLAYERS but some better than others.'

Both players have now received a one-match ban each for their actions but the Italian Football Federation could still open an investigation to assess any possible discrimination, as they are yet to receive the referee's report on the incident.
