- Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku exchanged heated words during Inter Milan ’s 2-1 victory over AC Milan on Wednesday
- The clash of the heads between both the players occurred before Zlatan was given a second yellow card in the 58 th minute of the game
- Both the Swede and his Belgian counterpart were on the score sheet as Inter dumped Milan out of the Coppa Italia
Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic literally gone into each other's heads during Wednesday's heated Milan derby in the Coppa Italia.
The towering strikers, both of whom have been at the top of their game since moving to Italy, clashed their heads at the halfway mark and were both cautioned by the referee. Though neither was intimidated by the other’s presence, as footage of the clash makes clear.
It was Zlatan, however, who ended up paying the ultimate price for his outburst, both individually as well as collectively. The Swede had to go off for a second bookable offence at the 58th minute mark when Milan were still leading courtesy his early goal, but his absence cost his side’s dearly.
Inter took full advantage of the Swede’s absence as a 71st minute Romelu Lukaku penalty was followed up by an injury-time Christian Eriksen winner to send them through to the semi-final of the competition the Nerazzurri haven’t won since the end of the 2010/11 campaign.
What was said in Zlatan v Lukaku clash?
During the heated clash of heads, the words of both Zlatan and Lukaku were picked up and amplified by the pitchside microphones, with both the superstars serving volleys of abuse in English language back and forth.

Ibrahimovic clearly told Lukaku: “Go do your voodoo sh*t, you little donkey. Go do your voodoo sh*t. Call your mother!” Lukaku didn’t take too kindly to the remark as he replied: “Well, let's go inside you b*tch. We will see.”
Both the players then traded further volleys of abuse, after which Lukaku followed Zlatan after the half-time whistle. The former Man Utd star ended their altercation with: “F*ck you and your wife, you little b*tch.”
