Zlatan Ibrahimovic Has Just Been Sent Off For Slapping Opponent Round The Head

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has just been sent off for slapping an opponent round the head.

The former Manchester United striker was playing in the MLS for his new side L.A Galaxy when he floored an opponent by slapping him round the head, before dropping to the floor himself.

After the referee looked at the video review, he saw that the towering striker was in the wrong on this occasion. Zlatan was rightly sent off with a straight red for violent conduct.


Safe to say, the reaction on social media has been wild.
