Ibrahimovic banned

0

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has accepted a three-match ban for violent conduct for elbowing Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

The Manchester United striker will miss Monday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Chelsea and Premier League games against Middlesbrough and West Brom.

Mings was also charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

But Bournemouth have said they will appeal against the defender’s charge.

Ibrahimovic, who is United’s leading scorer this season with 26 goals, is eligible to play in the Europa League tie against Rostov in Russia on Thursday. He is due to return in the Premier League against Everton on 4 April.
The players were given until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charge.

Deliberate elbowing and stamping are both red card offences. However, the FA suggested Mings could face an increased ban for his offence.zlatan-ibrahimovic
