Ibrahimovic accepts three-game domestic ban from FA

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will serve a three-game suspension having accepted a charge of violent conduct from the FA. The Manchester United striker was spotted elbowing Tyrone Mings in the face after the Bournemouth defender had stamped on Ibrahimovic’s head during Saturday’s 1-1 draw between the two sides in the Premier League, meaning the Swede will sit out United’s next three domestic fixtures having accepted the charge.

This means that Ibrahimovic will be missing for Monday’s FA Cup quarter final against Chelsea and Premier League fixtures at Middlesbrough on March 19th and at home to West Bromwich Albion on April 1st.

Mings, however, will serve a five-game ban due to the FA having deemed his offence more dangerous.

Ibrahimovic will be available for both legs of United’s Europa League tie with FC Rostov, however, with the first leg in Russia tomorrow evening, and the second leg at Old Trafford next Thursday.

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
