Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku escape more ban for Milan derby confrontation


AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku have avoided extra suspensions following their tussle in the Milan derby Italian Cup quarter-final last week, an Italian sports court said on Friday.

Both Ibrahimovic and Lukaku have each received a one-game ban.

Ibrahimovic was dismissed for a second yellow card after the head-to-head confrontation with Lukaku, who was also booked.

As Lukaku had already been booked in the competition, he will miss Tuesday’s semi-final with Juventus through an accumulation of cards.

Inter Milan had progressed 2-1 from the fiery last-eight clash with their city rivals.

Ibrahimovic received the standard ban for a red card which will apply for the next Italian Cup match he could play.

The Swedish striker also denied racism played a part in the incident, tweeting: “In Zlatan’s world there is no place for racism.”
