Lukaku Sends Message To Zlatan After Inter Comeback

After Inter Milan came from two goals down to beat AC Milan 4-2 in Serie A on Sunday night, striker Romelu Lukaku appeared to aim a jibe at his former Manchester United teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Milan went into half-time two goals to the good, after strikes in the 40th and 45th minute from Ante Rebic and 38-year-old Ibrahimovic, respectively.

After the break, however, the Nerazzurri came out with purpose, drawing level with their city rivals less than 10 minutes after the restart thanks to goals from Marcelo Brozovic and Matias Vecino.

Defender Stefan de Vrij then put Antonio Conte's side ahead 15 minutes later, before the game was sealed in stoppage time by Lukaku, who got on the end of a Victor Moses cross to score.

Taking to Twitter after the game, the Belgian striker, who has enjoyed a brilliant debut campaign in Italy, dubbed himself "the new king" of Milan, which many have interpreted as a jibe aimed at his former United colleague.

Ibrahimovic has often referred to himself and been referred to as the "king of Milan", although the message from Lukaku is likely to have been tongue in cheek, considering the healthy relationship they had at United.

Lukaku praised Ibrahimovic as recently as a week ago, labelling the towering Swede a "champion" in an interview leading up to the Milan derby.

What do you think has been key to Lukaku finding his best form in Italy? Let us know in the comments section below.
