Zlatan addresses LeBron & Lukaku feuds

Serie A

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has addressed his ongoing feuds with former teammate Romelu Lukaku and NBA star LeBron James.

Last week, Ibrahimovic started an apparent feud with basketball star LeBron James when he called for the Los Angeles Lakers' shooting guard to stop talking about politics and focus on his sport.

The four-time NBA MVP was quick to hit back with a response, claiming that social justice issues transcend sport, but the AC Milan striker has refused to let the matter lie.

"Athletes unite the world, politics divide it," Ibrahimovic said at a press conference for the San Remo music festival which he is co-hosting, doubling down on his previous criticism of James.

Ibrahimovic also commented on his altercation with former Manchester United teammate Romelu Lukaku, which saw the two prolific goalscorers clash during the recent Milan derby.

"If he wants to come [to San Remo] he’s welcome," the 39-year-old said, per the Guardian. "What happens on the pitch stays on the pitch."
