Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Man Utd striker banned for three games for violent conduct

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.

Mings, 23, landed on the United forward's head with his studs before Ibrahimovic, 35, caught his rival in the face with his elbow at a corner.

 

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.

 

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.
