The Swede took aim at Matrix in an interview this week.
"Materazzi would tackle you from behind intending to hurt you, and we players immediately realise when someone is just tackling tough like Giorgio Chiellini, like Jaap Stam or Paolo Maldini," said Ibrahimovic.
“I had unfinished business with Materazzi for years. I got him back in a derby. He went flying in with his feet raised, I jumped to avoid him and in the process got him with an elbow to the temple."
Materazzi responded with a social media post, with images of the World Cup and Champions League trophies, which Ibrahimovic has never won.
