Ibrahimovic slapped with a three game ban

The Swedish striker has been suspended following his clash with Bournemouths Tyrone Mings last weekend. This will mean the United striker will miss the North Wests clubs next two Premier League games.

Zlatan has accepted the fine placed on him by the Football Association for violent conduct and is set to miss Uniteds next three home games.

The player has scored 26 goals so far this season for the club and with no other player in double figures, he will definitely be a miss for the side. The Swede is in the squad for Uniteds game on Thursday night in Russia and will be available for both legs, as the ban is just domestic.

Its been a bad week for the player as he saw his penalty saved by Bournemouths Artur Boruc after the incident with Mings.

The referee in the game Kevin Friend managed to miss both incidents, thus the need for retrospective punishment. Although Ibrahimovic denied there was intent in the incident, saying that the player jumped into his elbow.
