ROMELU LUKAKU reportedly told Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘f*** you and your wife’ in their explosive Milan derby bust-up.
The two strikers – who were team-mates at Manchester United – came head to head in a fiery clash on Tuesday night after Lukaku was fouled by Alessio Romagnoli on the stroke of half-time.
AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic, 39, allegedly shouted: “Go do your voodoo s***, go do your voodoo s***, little donkey,” at the Belgian star.
Lukaku appeared to suggest Ibra had said something about his mother, too, and according to the Mail, the Inter Milan striker fired back, saying: “‘F*** you and your wife, you little b****. You want to speak about my mother?”
The ex-Chelsea and Everton man then charged at the Swede and blasted: “Let’s go inside you b****,” before both players were booked.
Inter staff and players had to restrain Lukaku as the teams made for the tunnel at half-time.
It is believed that Ibrahimovic’s ‘voodoo’ remark was referring to Everton owner Farhad Moshiri’s claim in January 2018 that Lukaku left the Toffees after a witch doctor advised him to join Chelsea.
Lukaku, 27, has since denied those accusations and threatened to sue Moshiri for them.
Zlatan, who had fired his side in front on 31 minutes, picked up a second yellow card just before the hour mark, changing the game.
Lukaku fired in a penalty off the underside of the bar to equalise against the ten men of AC.

And Christian Eriksen – linked with a move away from the San Siro this month – curled home a perfect free-kick in the seventh minute of injury time to seal Inter’s spot in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.
But the angry exchange between Ibrahimovic and Lukaku dominated the headlines.
The pair seemingly got on well during their eight months together at Old Trafford in the 2017-18 season and had a ‘very strong’ partnership.
Zlatan told Sky Sports in 2017: “Lukaku is in the team, scoring a lot of goals – he’s making the job easier for me. Lukaku is only positive. He makes my comeback less pressured.
“He’s scoring his goals and doing what he needs to do, and I’m happy for that. We will see how things go, but I see it [the partnership] very strong.”
Lukaku echoed their positive vibes in an interview in 2019, saying: “Everything I learned from Zlatan was great, from his stories that he told me to being on the field working with him, seeing how competitive he was.
“I learned just to focus, work hard and enjoy it as well. Because he is a guy who you can have a lot fun with as well and having his personality in the dressing room was good.”
Speaking last night, Milan manager Stefano Pioli berated his veteran striker for the red card.
He said: “The confrontation certainly influenced the match, the first booking caused the sending off.
“They’re big enough and ugly enough, I don’t know what they said to each other, it can happen, we need to move past it and think of the next match.”
Inter boss Antonio Conte, however, hailed his man for the way he dealt with the incident.
He added: “I’ve been a player, so I know that during a game tempers can flare and situations occur when you get angry.
“It was good to see Romelu so concentrated and focused. Ibra has the determination of a winner, a warrior, and I think Romelu is growing in that aspect. I can only be happy to see him fired up.”
