While he recently took part in the opening of the Sanremo Music Festival, Zlatan Ibrahimovic spoke about one of his latest incidents that brought him into contact with Belgium international Romelu Lukaku.
The facts date back to February 26, during the derby between the two Milanese teams (AC Milan against Inter Milan). Ibrahimovic and Lukaku are two former Manchester United teammates who have engaged in a heated exchange of words. Lukaku even invited Ibrahimovic to "come out".
The Swede recalled the circumstances in which he had this altercation with Lukaku: “ There is no personal problem between Lukaku and me. What happens on the ground stays on the ground. If he wants to come here, I will receive him. "
He also brought up the case of basketball player LeBron James: “ Racism and politics are different things. Athletes share the world, politics divides. Everyone is welcome to join us, but athletes must remain athletes, politicians must remain politicians. Only that."
It should be noted that the presence of Ibrahimovic at the festival has attracted some criticism, since the 39-year-old is injured:
“I am a professional and anyone who knows me knows that. When I play football, I just focus on that. I want to help Milan and give back to Italy what they have given me over the years, not just in football. I had the opportunity to be invited to the Festival, one of the most important events in the country, so I accepted it. “, He explained on the Italian antennas.
