Yesterday, Inter beat 2-1 AC Milan in the first leg of Coppa Italia's quarterfinals. But the highlight of that derby was the fight between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku, with an exchange of insults that almost went to the fists. Zlatan was sent off and Inter scored two goals to win the game.
Zlatan attacked the Belgian telling him 'Go do your sh*t voodoo rituals somewhere else', and got a red card. But, what is the story behind this insult? What did Ibrahimovic know about Lukaku to say this? They had a good relationship when they played together at Manchester United, but now they hate each other.
Ibrahimovic got that information from something that a member of Everton board said some years ago, that Romelu rejected a contract extension with them and sign for Manchester United because his mother told him to do so after some voodoo ritual. Lukaku denied that statement and told he is a Catholic.
Zlatan, at the same time, was accused of throwing racist insults to the Inter striker, and he denied those accusations with a post on Twitter, with his classic snarky tone. They are two of the three best Serie A players, with Cristiano Ronaldo, and their fight is all around the world.
