“There’s a new king in town”, Romelu Lukaku Mocks Zlatan Ibrahimovic After Derby

Following Inter Milan’s 4-2 victory over archrival AC Milan, Romelu Lukaku has taken a swipe at Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The former Manchester United striker secured the win for Inter through a header, from a cross by Nigerian international Victor Moses’ assist, sending them to the top of the Serial A table, ahead of Juventus who lost to 2-1 to Verona.

New arrival, Ante Rebic, had put Milan in front before Ibrahimovic, who returned to Milan in December on a free transfer, scored a second goal for the Rossoneri, giving them a 2-0 lead at half-time.

However, Antonio Conte’s half-term peptalk seemed to have spurred his players, as they came back determined to secure a win at the San Siro.

Inter came back through goals from Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and Lukaku.

After the game however, the Belgian star took to Twitter, to declare himself King, in what many saw as a swype on Ibra.

“There’s a new king in town”, his tweet read.

Lukaku, who has been in top form since joining Inter Milan, has so far scored 17 league goals as they chase a first Scudetto since 2010, in a bid to oust Juventus’ from further domination of the Italian Seria A.

More so, Lukaku while speaking to Sky Sport Italia, said: “We did really well during the second half. They played well during the first half, as we left them too much space and we struggled.

“However, we came out well after the interval. We completed the comeback and we’re delighted with the win.

“I think that everyone has seen this team’s mentality, we never give up and we’re always looking to win.

“I’m here to win and my only aim is to help the team get results.

“I want to thank all of the fans, my team-mates, Mister Conte and all of his backroom staff for the support that they’re giving me.”

De Vrij who also spoke to Inter TV, had this to say: “The coach made us understand what he wanted and where to improve during the break, fortunately we scored two goals in quick succession and we were back in the game. We won.

“The goals were incredible feelings and memories that will last forever. Winning is a unique feeling.

“It’s tight in the table so we have to continue like this and win our games.

“We’ll start focusing on Napoli now because it won’t be an easy game on Wednesday.”

Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic who provided the assist to the first goal by Rebic, before scoring the second was not quite pleased with his team mates, as he expresses his frustration to Sky Italia:

“It’s difficult to explain what happened. At half-time we told ourselves, the first 15 minutes going back out there will be crucial, and in that 15-minute spell we conceded two goals.

“We stopped playing, the team stopped believing, we stopped pressing, didn’t pass it around enough. From the equaliser onwards, everything collapsed.
“I think a lot of it is down to experience, because you must know how to control a game at 2-0 up, not just winning at the end.

“It’s strange, because our first half was practically perfect. I expected more from Inter and the first-half performance did not look like a team worthy of second place. They did after the break,” Ibrahimovic said.
