Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘voodoo’ jibe at Romelu Lukaku was reference to bizarre Everton U-turn

Romelu Lukaku was taunted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic over his alleged voodoo beliefs during their mega bust-up at the San Siro.

The former Manchester United team-mates clashed in Inter Milan and AC Milan’s Coppa Italia quarter-final tie on Tuesday night.

Both players were given yellow cards before half time as they exchanged verbals on the pitch.

And the spat continued going into the half-time break as Lukaku had to be pulled away from Ibrahimovic by manager Antonio Conte.

The Swede had pushed his head into Lukaku’s earlier, and with no fans inside the stadium, many of their jibes at one another could be clearly heard.

Milan representatives have denied the slur was meant as a racist insult.

And Ibrahimovic’s message to Lukaku stems back to Everton major shareholder Farhad Moshiri’s comments on the former Toffees striker back in January 2018.

Moshiri revealed then that Lukaku had turned down a new contract at Goodison Park the previous year.

“Robert [Elstone, Everton’s chief executive] was there, everything was in place, there were a few reporters outside, then in the meeting Rom called his mother.

“He said he was on a pilgrimage in Africa or somewhere and he had a voodoo and he got the message that he needs to go to Chelsea.”
