Zlatan Ibrahimovic charged with violent conduct, set to be banned

Zlatan Ibrahimovic charged with violent conduct, set to be banned

Mings, however, is facing a lengthier ban after the FA claimed that three games would be "clearly insufficient" for the defender's alleged violent act.

It was another frustrating Premier League Saturday for Manchester United in a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth. Should the 31-year-old start as a nine once more, it would give the manager the chance to play both Martial and Rashford in wide positions should he need greater pace on the flanks. A panel of elite former referees, having studied the footage, agreed that charges were necessary.

The Manchester United striker appeared to deliberately elbow the Bournemouth defender amid a running feud between them at Old Trafford.

Under FA disciplinary rules, any incident not seen by the match officials is reviewed by three ex-referees, who must all agree a red-card offence has been committed before a charge is issued.

Both players escaped punishment during a controversial referring performance and Ibrahimovic has since pleaded his innocence by saying 'he jumps into my elbow'.

"I am not here to attack anybody".

The actor took to social media to make this confession and ended up getting an offer to star in it from the Producer of the show. He said: fantastic to discover that @ iamsrk is a #dirkgently fan. "Come guest star in #Season2", he then tweeted.


The FA confirm that the charges are for the two separate incidents, neither of which were seen by referee Kevin Friend, in a chaotic few minutes that also saw Bournemouth captain Andrew Surman sent off for a second bookable offence.

The switch of the 19-year-old would give United a far more pacey outlet, but Rashford arguably falls well short of Ibrahimovic in terms of his ability with his back to goal which has proven to be a huge part of United's game this season.

The clashes between the pair came after Ibrahimovic had already tossed Mings to the ground during their ongoing battle in the lunchtime kick-off. "The game is hard".

When asked about the possibility of retrospective action after the game at the weekend, Ibrahimovic had said: "I respect every decision".

"When you are out there on the pitch you have to try and get back in and defend".

"Now I would expect the Football Association to hand both of them bans in the coming days, with Mings fully deserving everything he gets in my eyes".
