ROMELU LUKAKU has appeared to take a subtle dig at Zlatan Ibrahimovic after Inter Milan were crowned as Serie A champions.

The 27-year-old has been instrumental in helping the Nerazzurri win their first Scudetto since 2010 having banged in 21 goals in 33 Italian top-flight games.

Since joining from Manchester United in 2019, the Belgium international has found the back of the net a whopping 61 times in 92 matches in all competitions.

And he has struck up a rivalry with his former Red Devils team-mate Ibrahimovic, with the pair no strangers to tradings insults.

The duo have been involved in a war of words off the pitch as well as on it, with the Swedish maverick taking offence to a tweet from Lukaku last year.

Taking to social media after Inter’s 4-2 derby win in February 2020, the ex-Chelsea centre-forward tweeted: “There’s a new king in town.”

Ibrahimovic then had his revenge when AC beat Inter in October 2020 where he scored twice in a 2-1 win.

He posted: “Milan never had a king, they have a GOD.”

But Lukaku has had the final say after Inter’s Serie A success, as he uploaded a picture of him with open arms being mobbed by his team-mates, in a snap reminiscent of what Ibrahimovic shared.

Lukaku quipped: “The real god has crowned the king! Now bow down. King of Milano.”

Another commented: “Ibrahimovic in the mud.”

A third added: “Zlatan slander? Let’s have it.”
