Romelu Lukaku continued his spat with Zlatan Ibrahimovic by posting a message seemingly aimed at his former teammate on Twitter. Lukaku appears to have labelled himself ‘the king’ and told Ibrahimovic to ‘bow down’ to him.
Lukaku Continues War of Words with Ibrahimovic
Inter Milan’s Scudetto Was Used as an Opportunity to Take Another Dig at Ibrahimovic
Inter were crowned Italian champions on Sunday after Atalanta’s draw with Sassuolo, ending Juventus’ domination of Serie A.
The Belgian used his side’s 4-2 victory in February last season as an opportunity to take a dig at Ibrahimovic by posting a picture of himself saying “there’s a new king in town.”
His Swedish counterpart replied after a 2-1 victory for AC Milan eight months later by posting a picture of himself to Instagram with the caption: “Milano never had a king, they have a GOD.”
Lukaku, who has been one of Antonio Conte’s key players this season, was then involved in an altercation during a Coppa Italia game in January which earned both players a one-match ban.
The soon-to-be 28-year-old again used social media to poke at Ibrahimovic in a post that read: “The real god has crowned the king! Now bow down Il nostro dio ha incoronato i Re! Ora inchinatevi! King of Milano.”
The real god ✝️
has crowned the king!
Now bow down
Il nostro dio ✝️ ha incoronato i Re!
King of Milano 😉👑 pic.twitter.com/n0gAiYWFTp

More of This Will Likely Come
News of Ibrahimovic’s contract extension with AC Milan in April would suggest that the striker is not willing to leave the sport while his rivals in Inter and Lukaku are on top.
The 39-year-old was part of the last Milan side to win the Scudetto and appeared on course to bring the crown back to the red side of Milan for much of this season.
Ibrahimovic also returned to the Swedish national team ahead of this summer’s European Championships. There is plenty of fire in his belly to return to add more trophies to his incredible list of honours.
