FIGC President Gabriele Gravina says the spat between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku was ‘not pleasant,’ but maintains that strikers do not deserve exemplary penalties.

The Inter and Milan forwards became embroiled in a spat during a Coppa Italia quarter-final clash on January 26.

The Swede triggered Lukaku’s rage by telling him: “Do your voodoo s***” and faces a long suspension if he is found guilty of racial violence against Lukaku, as the Federal Prosecutor has launched an investigation.

“Gravina told Il CorrieDellalla Sera, “It was not a good thing to see, but I wouldn’t talk about exemplary punishments.”

“The Federal Prosecutor must, however, make a decision,” the FIGC President said.
