Reports claim that the Inter Milan forward has been told by his mother Adolphine to take revenge after clashing with his former Man United teammate in the Coppa Italia.
The AC Milan striker was accused of telling Lukaku: after the two powerhouse strikers clashed in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
“Go and do your voodoo s***, you little donkey” and to “go and call your mama.”
Zlatan was sent off while Lukaku was suspended after inviting Swedish striker for a fight:
“You want to talk about my mum? Let’s go inside.”
