Milan suffered a 2-1 defeat to their bitter rivals in a fierce derby in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals on Tuesday.

The Sweden legend put his side ahead in the encounter, but the match was marred by a clash between Ibrahimovic and his former Manchester United teammate Romelu Lukaku just before half-time, with the pair going head to head in a heated confrontation.

The duo had to be restrained as the players left the pitch, and both received yellow cards. Ibrahimovic then saw red after a foul on Aleksandar Kolarov earned him a second booking in the 58th minute.

The Rossoneri's manager has since revealed that the Swede apologised to his teammates in the changing room after the match.

"He (Ibrahimovic) apologised like the great champion he is," Pioli said, per ESPN.

"He got a bit caught up in the desire to help the team.

"It wasn't easy to stay in the game a man down. The pressure from Inter was strong."
