Video: Ibrahimovic and Lukaku clash in foul-mouthed spat during fiery Milan derby

Two former Manchester United strikers went head-to-head during a fiery Milan derby on Tuesday night.

Christian Eriksen’s stoppage-time free-kick secured Inter Milan a 2-1 Coppa Italia win over rivals AC Milan.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic got into a spat with Romelu Lukaku and was later sent off.

The Swede got the eventful evening going with a strike in the 31st-minute to put the Rossoneri ahead in the derby.

But just before half-time Ibrahimovic clashed with Lukaku, after the two were teammates under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

At one point their heads were pressed against each other, which resulted in a booking for the pair — but Ibrahimovic didn’t recieve his marching orders until he fouled Aleksandar Kolarov just before the hour mark.

A penalty in the 71st minute saw Lukaku draw things level.

Ibrahimovic and Lukaku really clashed towards the tunnel at half-time. The Belgian screamed something foul-mouthed about the AC Milan forward and his wife.

It’s hard to know what Ibrahimovic said to truly rile his former United team-mate but I don’t think the pair will be expecting to exchange Christmas gifts this year.

There’s no arguing which one of the strikers Mourinho prefers…
