The Milan derby is heating up! Romelu Lukaku has lost his head, with a fight with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his mind – or so it seems.
It’s Zlatan who gave Milan the lead in the first-half of the Coppa Italia contest, firing home into the bottom corner of the goal with a brilliant finish.

That was somewhat against the run of play, with Romelu Lukaku working his socks off to try and create a clear cut opportunity for Inter Milan. You could see why the Belgian would be slightly disgruntled to be trailing with 45 minutes on the clock.
However, it’s unclear exactly what sparked a furious reaction from the former Chelsea and Manchester United man, which led to him going head-to-head with Zlatan on the field, before being dragged off down the tunnel by Inter staff.

On this evidence, it’s no surprise that Man United have had such mixed fortunes over the years, if even their own players have hated each other…
