AC Milan forward Ibrahimovic denies racist language towards Lukaku

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has denied using racist language in his clash with Romelu Lukaku in the Milan derby on Tuesday night, reports BBC Sport.

AC Milan forward Ibrahimovic and Inter striker Lukaku were involved in a number of incidents on the pitch - before Ibrahimovic was eventually sent off.

"In Zlatan's world there is no place for racism," the Swede tweeted.

However he then added an apparent dig at his former Manchester United teammate by adding: "We are all the same race - we are all equal !! We are all players some better then others."
