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?
