LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic received a red card for slapping an opponent in the head during a league match on Monday.
Montreal Impact winger Michael Petrasso stepped on the 36-year-old’s foot in the 40th minute of the match and the Swede retaliated with a slap to the back of Petrasso’s head.
Both players fell to the ground in an apparent effort to win the sympathy of referee, but after a review of the video, Petrasso was shown a yellow card and the former Manchester United striker got a red.
Here is the video of the incident.
