AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dismissed claims that he racially abused Romelu Lukaku.

The duo were booked following a spat at the end of the first half of the recent Milan derby, which continued into the tunnel during the interval.

The two former United forwards were heard on television, due to the San Siro being empty, – exchanging insults as Lukaku had to be restrained by his team-mates in an attempt to confront the Swedish forward.

The 39-year-old Swedish striker, who had given Milan a first-half lead, was sent off after picking up a second yellow card after the break, while Lukaku levelled with a penalty before Christian Eriksen struck a stoppage-time winner for Inter to send them through with a 2-1 win.
