Romelu Lukaku is unhappy with Zlatan Ibrahimovic after clashing with the Swede over his position at Manchester United, according to reports.
Ibrahimovic made his return from a cruciate ligament injury last month and provided an interesting talking point when he made his way on to the pitch against Newcastle United as he instructed Lukaku to move out to a wider position.
In United’s next game against Basel, the Belgium international walked towards the touchline once again as Ibrahimovic came on as a second-half substitute before being told to stay in his position by Ander Herrera.
According to the Daily Mirror, Lukaku fells ‘undermined’ by Ibrahimovic and is unhappy that Jose Mourinho and United’s coaching team has not spoken to the 36-year-old about the incident.
Lukaku has struggled for goals in recent weeks but has still scored 14 in 26 appearances for United so far this season. But the Belgian’s has not celebrated his last two goals and the Mirror claim that his relationship with Ibrahimovic is one of the key factors behind it. Lukaku, who also took Ibrahimovic’s No.9 shirt when he arrived at United in the summer, is also unhappy with Paul Pogba and Mino Raiola as the Mirror claims that both men are ‘gravitating’ towards the Swedish striker.
