Manchester United star, Zlatan ibrahimovic, got banned by FA for violent conduct during the game against AFC Bournemouth.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has accepted a three-match ban for elbowing Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. The Manchester United striker will miss Monday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Chelsea and Premier League games against Middlesbrough and West Brom.
After the announcement of the ban, the Twitterati had a field day with some loyal supporters standing by their hero, while some had pretty interesting views about the incident.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “You have the TV, you can see the images. I jump up and jump high and Mings jumps into my elbow.”

Manchester United fans were not too pleased with Mings either, as he “accidentally” stamped on Ibrahimovic’s face while he was down on the ground.
That stamp is going to be the most relevant thing in Tyrone Mings’ entire career. Nothing player who’ll be at Peterborough in a few years

Zlatan Ibrahimovic vs Tyrone Mings at UFC 209 tonight. My money’s on a first round Zlatan KO.
