PARIS (AP) — The French League’s disciplinary commission will meet later this week to discuss Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s possible ban following his criticism of a match referee.
The PSG striker could be suspended for misconduct after losing his temper following the club’s 3-2 loss at Bordeaux in the French league on Sunday.
Ibrahimovic vented his anger on television at decisions which went against his side, saying in English “in 15 years I’ve never seen a referee” like Lionel Jaffredo. He then used an expletive to describe France as he walked past reporters after the game.
The Swedish forward later said he was sorry after the French sports minister asked him to apologize for the comments, which were caught on camera.
The French league said it has received the referee’s game report and will meet on Thursday.
