Romelu Lukaku has resumed his war of words with Zlatan Ibrahimovic after Inter Milan were crowned as Serie A champions Sunday.
The Nerazzurri clinched their first Scuddetto in 11 years Sunday after second-placed Atalanta could only draw at Sassuolo.
Lukaku, 27, was instrumental in helping the Nerazzurri win their first title since the treble of 2010, banging in 21 goals in 33 Italian top-flight games.
The big Belgian has struck up a rivalry with his former Manchester United team-mate Ibrahimovic, now with AC Milan, which intensified this season with the city rivals involved in a title race.
The extra large 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.”
The real god ✝️
has crowned the king!
Now bow down
Il nostro dio ✝️ ha incoronato i Re!
King of Milano 😉👑 pic.twitter.com/n0gAiYWFTp

But Lukaku has had the final say after Inter’s Serie A success, as he uploaded a picture of himself with open arms being mobbed by his team-mates, in a snap reminiscent of what Ibrahimovic shared.
He captioned it: “The real god has crowned the king! Now bow down. King of Milano.”
Wonder what Zlatan is gonna do next.
