Sky via Football Italia are reporting that Zlatan Ibrahimovic was required to explain his altercation with Romelu Lukaku in the derby to AC Milan's directors at the training session yesterday. The striker also took to social media to affirm that there was no racist abuse during the row with this statement on Twitter.
“In ZLATAN’s world there is no place for RACISM.
We are all the same race - we are all equal !!
We are all PLAYERS some better then others.”
ANSA via MilanLive.it are reporting that that there could be further repercussions past the yellow cards for the two players as the Sporting Judge is yet to examine the referee's report and could escalate the matter to an FIGC Prosecutor. This would only occur if there is insufficient evidence to make a ruling.
