Romelu Lukaku sharpens Zlatan in barely veiled jibe as Inter Milan revel in first Serie A title in 11 years – RT Sport News – fr

    L'attaquant de l'Inter Milan Romelu Lukaku a pris un coup contre son rival de l'AC Milan Zlatan Ibrahimovic après que le grand Belge ait revendiqué le droit de se vanter alors que son équipe avait remporté un premier titre de Serie A depuis 2010.

</p><div><p>L'Inter a été couronné champion dimanche après que son rival le plus proche, Atalanta, n'ait pu faire match nul qu'avec Sassuolo, offrant à l'équipe d'Antonio Conte un Scudetto tant attendu et déclenchant des scènes joyeuses dans les rues de la ville italienne.   

Inter’s title is their 19th Scudetto overall, but the first since winning a Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League treble under Jose Mourinho in the 2009-10 season.

Since then, they’ve been forced to watch city rivals AC Milan claim the Serie A crown once before Turin giants Juventus clinch nine straight triumphs.

Forward Lukaku has been a crucial force in Inter’s success, scoring 21 goals in 33 games this season as well as nine assists.

For Lukaku, Inter’s title success is even sweeter after his personal battle with Swedish AC Milan icon Ibrahimovic.

The two clashed with fury in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals derby in January when they hit each other on the head and exchanged words, with Ibrahimovic appearing to tell Lukaku to “Go do your voodoo sh * t” in a reference to a history dating back to his days with Everton in the English Premier League.

Lukaku responded by shouting “F * ck you and your wife, little bitch” because he was retained by his teammates.

When the teams met in February, Lukaku was on the scoresheet as Inter claimed a 3-0 victory and was heard exclaim. ” I told you “ – in what was seen as another response to Ibrahimovic.

But after sealing the bragging rights on Sunday, Lukaku posted a new withered beard to his rival on Twitter.

“The true god crowned the king! Now bow down! King of Milan ”, the attacker tweeted.

Lukaku and Ibrahimovic – who are former teammates in their time at Manchester United – have fueled their rivalry since the 39-year-old Swede returned to Italy at the end of 2019, which has been touted as ” the king’s return. “

After Inter beat their San Siro neighbors in a 4-2 thriller in February 2020 – with Lukaku scoring an extra-time strike to seal victory – the Belgian scorned the idea that Ibrahimovic was royalty, proclaiming instead on Twitter “There is a new king in town. “

Not content to leave that lie, Ibrahimovic hit back after scoring a brace against Inter in their Serie A clash in October, tweeting a photo of himself and the message: “Milan never had a king, only a God. “

At the start of the season, Ibrahimovic looked most likely to win his ugly personal war with Lukaku as Milan started their campaign strong, being undefeated in Serie A until January 6 when they lost to Juventus.

But gathered by the irrepressible Conte in the canoe, Inter has gained momentum and has never regretted its rise to the top of the standings on February 14, at the top of the standings since.

With four games to go, Inter have an unassailable 13-point gap ahead of Atalanta, AC Milan and Juventus – all of whom are tied with 69 points.

Lukaku has had another impressive season and has now scored 61 goals in 92 appearances in all competitions for Inter since leaving Manchester United in August 2019 for € 80million ($ 96.5million) .

Such has been Lukaku’s form, he has been linked with a return to the Premier League with former club Chelsea reportedly interested in potentially bringing him back to Stamford Bridge.

Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, has signed a one-year extension with Milan to keep him at the club next season, when he turns 40.

The Swede, whose own peripatetic career led him to a stint at Inter between 2006 and 2009, will at least have the chance to recover the crown torn from his head by young claimant Lukaku.
