Ibrahimovic to miss Cup clash against Chelsea after ban

Ibrahimovic to miss Cup clash against Chelsea after ban

Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings has been given a five-match ban for stamping on the head of Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Football Association said on Wednesday (Mar 8).

The former Sweden global lashed out on Mings during a coming together in the Cherries' penalty area after the Bournemouth defender appeared to stamp on Ibrahimovic's head.

Manchester United anticipate Ibrahimovic, 35, to remain at Old Trafford for at the very least an additional year, although the Swede is yet to verify if he will certainly occupy the 12-month expansion alternative on his existing bargain.

Ibrahimovic has been included in the travelling squad for Rostov before his ban commences in the FA Cup against Chelsea on Monday night.

The FA says it "has submitted a claim that the standard punishment that would otherwise apply for the misconduct committed by the Bournemouth defender is 'clearly insufficient'".

"It follows an incident in or around the 44th minute of the game between Manchester United and AFC Bournemouth on Saturday (4 March 2017)".

However, Ibrahimovic, who is United's leading scorer this season with 26 goals, is eligible to play in the Europa League tie against Rostov in Russian Federation on Thursday. There will be things highlighted more than others, but I enjoyed it'. "I have to think about different matches at the same time". As a result, they were referred to a panel of three former elite referees, who unanimously concluded that both offences merited red cards.
