Los Angeles Player Mohamed El-Munir To See Specialist After Elbow From Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic grabbed all the headlines for his goalscoring heroics against Los Angeles at the weekend.

The 37-year-old bagged a 'perfect' hat-trick after describing himself as being "like a Ferrari" in a league full of "Fiats" before the game.

But an incident involving Los Angeles defender Mohamed El-Munir didn't receive as much attention.


Many believe the LA Galaxy striker should have received a card for an elbow in the latter stages of the game.

And it turns out El-Munir may need surgery after taking a heavy hit to the temple in Friday's El Trafico, according to L.A Times writer Kevin Baxter.

He believes the Los Angeles player will see a specialist on Monday, while suggesting Major League Soccer's disciplinary committee "may have a look at this" incident.


The 27-year-old is rumored to have a potential "zygomatic fracture", according to Taylor Twellman of ESPN.


The above incident involving Mohamed El-Munir may be the reason why a member of Los Angeles' coaching staff approached Ibrahimovic after the full-time whistle.

In a video that soon went viral, the 37-year-old exchanged words with one of their coaches and appeared to say: "F**k off, go home you little b**ch" before leaving the field of play.

You can clearly see the coach using an elbow movement in the clip. Thoughts on the incident?
