Former Everton Lukaku striker and former Liverpool defender Sakho faced off in a heated Merseyside derby at Goodison Park in October 2015, before the two players were held back by their teammates.
But the duo showed that there was no more bad blood between them during a lockout chat on Lukaku’s Instagram account.
The Belgian international praised Sakho – who is now at the Crystal Palace – during the conversation, saying: “You are one of the players with whom, if I had you on my team, I would go war, and that’s why. “
Lukaku, now Inter Milan, then showed images of the break between the two men, the duo clashing before they were separated by teammates from Sakho and Liverpool, Martin Skrtel and Emre Can, as well as Aaron Lennon of Everton.
The Frenchman is then also calmed by James Milner and Alberto Moreno, Skrtel throwing his arms around him.
Sakho laughed at the streak as the couple remembered, and Lukaku remembered that it was his family, rather than him, that was most upset.
“You know, after the game, I brought my whole neighborhood,” he continued.

“Everyone was there, even my little brother Jordan, he was waiting for him.
“I said” it’s just a game, it’s over “. he is [Sakho] a cool guy. ”
The match at Goodison Park ended 1-1, Lukaku canceling Danny Ings’ opening for Liverpool shortly before half-time.
The game would continue to be remembered for something other than the bankruptcy of Lukaku and Sakho, with Brendan Rodgers sacked as Liverpool manager just hours after the final whistle.
