No place for racism in “Zlatan’s world” after “voodoo” row with Lukaku

Footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said there is no place for racism in “Zlatan’s world”.

The AC Milan striker was defending himself after an on-field clash with Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku.

The forwards – who both played together at Manchester United – argued at the end of the first half of a Coppa Italia quarter-final.


As they left the pitch they had to be restrained by teammates .

However, a BBC pitch-side microphone picked up the squabble.

It’s reported Ibrahimovic said to Lukaku “go do your voodoo” – a reference to the Belgian allegedly turning down a previous contract on the advice of a “voodoo message.”

Ibrahimovic said on Twitter:

“In Zlatan’s world there is no place for racism.

“We are all the same race – we are all equal.

“We’re all players some better than others.”

AC Milan went on the lose the game 2-1.

Ibrahimovic was sent after receiving a second yellow card.

The Italian football league is investigating the remarks.
