Last weekend’s Milan derby was marked by a falling out between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku. The two former Manchester United teammates had almost come to blows shortly before half-time. The Swede, very angry, had also been excluded shortly before the hour mark.
Asked at the microphone of Sky Italy, the sporting director of AC Milan Paolo Maldini returned to this clash which animated the debates all week, Zlatan having been accused of racism in particular. “It happens to get confused, it’s not great, but it must stay on the ground. We are ready to defend our player if racism is put in all of this. He defended his teammates attacked by Lukaku » did he declare.
