Ibrahimovic two, Lukaku one – he not only won the city duel with AC Milan against Inter, but also the duel of the goal scorers.
Cult clipper Zlatan Ibrahimovic (39) shot his colors with a double pack almost single-handedly to the derby victory – 2: 1. Romelu Lukakus (27) connecting gate was not enough.
Ibrahimovic then made a pithy statement on his social media channels – very Zlatan-like.
“Milan never had a king, it has a god,” wrote the Swede. Zlatan in top form – on the pitch and verbally. A message that was addressed to his striker competitor Lukaku.
Background: In his first time at AC (2010 – 2012) Ibrahimovic described himself as the “King of Milan”.
Lukaku took this as an opportunity last February to tease Ibrahimovic. After Inter 4: 2 in the “Derby della Madonnina” (after 0: 2 deficit), the Belgium goalscorer posted: “There is a new king in town”.
Now the return carriage. The fans can already look forward to who will claim rulership of the city after the next derby (21.2.21).
The derby hits were already Zlatan’s goals three and four of the season. He has only played two league games and recently missed two games because he was infected with the corona virus. Lukaku is also at four, making both top scorers in Italy.
