Zlatan On Lukaku: I Have To Settle A Bill With Him

AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he still has a "bill to settle" with Romelu Lukaku after their heated battle last season.

The former Manchester United teammates clashed during the Coppa Italia quarter-finals last season, during which Ibrahimovic made a "voodoo" comment about Lukaku's mother.

The 40-year-old has now insisted he would love a rematch, but only on the football field, which could happen if Milan meet Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

"Lukaku has a great ego, he thinks he's a champion and he's really strong. But I grew up in the Malmo ghetto, and when someone comes under me with his head down, I put him in his place," Ibrahimovic told Corriere della Sera, as translated by Football Italia.

"So, I hit him in his sweet spot: his mum's rituals. And he lost control. Although, I still have a terrible doubt… we lost that derby. I was sent off. Then I got injured. A lot of bad things happened. You'll see that the Lukaku rituals really got me?

"I asked my believing friends to pray for me. I have to settle the bill with him too. I hope to meet him soon.

"On the street? No, these are things that must be resolved on the pitch. I don't hate anyone, much less Lukaku."
