Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has broken his silence on the intense and heated on-field fight he had with his former Manchester United teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier this year.
The two former colleagues clashed during a Coppa Italia match between Inter and city rivals AC Milan in January, with the Swede reportedly calling Lukaku a "donkey".
Lukaku and Ibrahimovic then entered into a war of words, before Ibrahimovic was later sent off after picking up a second yellow card for an unrelated incident.
Now, in an interview with Corriere della Sera, Lukaku has admitted he regrets reacting the way he did.
"We were losing 1-0, I missed a goal, I was a bit angry.
"His words struck me. I'm not happy with having reacted like this.
"I am humble and calm, I am a winner and I fight to the death for my teammates and for the victory."
The former Everton forward then went on to say that Ibrahimovic being in Serie A is good for Italian football.
"A great player, he has won everywhere he has played, he has scored more than 500 goals," he added.
"We need players of this level in Serie A. He wants to win for himself, me for Inter, (Cristiano) Ronaldo for Juve, now there is Mou )Jose Mourinho) at Roma: they are all good things for Italy.
"The level is raised, let's hope Inter win again."
