Zlatan Ibrahimovic ban: Man United to miss Chelsea, Middlesbrough and West Brom games

How long will Tyrone Mings and Zlatan Ibrahimovic be banned for?

The Football Association released the following statement on Tuesday afternoon:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after he admitted an FA charge of violent conduct and accepted the standard penalty.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss Manchester United’s FA Cup clash with Chelsea after being hit with a three-game ban for elbowing Tyrone Mings.

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

“The misconduct was not seen by the match officials at the time but caught on video.”

United’s leading scorer will consequently miss the Emirates FA Cup tie at Chelsea, followed by the Premier League matches against Middlesbrough and West Brom. He is due to return in the home game with Everton on 4 April but remains eligible for the Reds’ Europa League clashes with FC Rostov.

Ibrahimovic has missed only one league game all season up to this point, the draw with Arsenal in November.
