CorSera: Further sanctions possible as prosecutor asks for video and audio of Ibra-Lukaku row

By Oliver Fisher -

The Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku episode is not over, a report claims, as it will go to the Federal Prosecutor.

The pair clashed during last Tuesday night’s Coppa Italia meeting between the Rossoneri and the Nerazzurri, with numerous quite personal insults exchanged and their heads even coming together before team-mates intervened to separate them.

According to il Corriere della Sera (via MilanLive), the incident will be investigated by the Federal Prosecutor and the acquisition of audio and video evidence is foreseen ‘to analyse in detail the behaviour and words of the two players’.

It isn’t clear when the FIGC Prosecutor’s Office will make a verdict nor what it will be, but the Sporting Judge has already disqualified Ibrahimovic and Lukaku for one game in the Coppa Italia.

However, this only takes into account only the cards that the two forwards received, because the Swede was sent off for a second yellow while the Belgian received his second booking of the competition and therefore earns a one-game ban too.

Since the report of referee Paolo Valeri was incomplete, the Prosecutor was able to evaluate an intervention to potentially increase the punishment.
