AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dismissed claims he racially abused Romelu Lukaku on Tuesday night.
The two former Manchester United strikers budded heads as Inter Milan beat AC Milan 3-1 in Serie A, where both men got yellow cards.

The 39-year-old Swedish striker has since responded to reports of racism that followed after the event.
"In ZLATAN's world there is no place for RACISM. We are all the same race – we are all equal! We are all PLAYERS some better than others," he said on Twitter.
