Zlatan Ibrahimovic is slapping people now

Dirty Tackle

Having mastered the art of kicking teammates, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now moved on to slapping opponents. Zlatan was sent off in the 64th minute of Milan's 0-0 draw against Napoli for reaching around teammate Antonio Nocerino to slap Salvatore Aronica in the face. If the slap is ruled to be a violent gesture, then Ibra will have to serve a three-match ban.

From Football Italia:

"I am reading catastrophic opinions on this, but there was no violence," assured Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

"Therefore, I believe Ibrahimovic will not receive more than a two-match ban. I also spotted Aronica's gesture towards Antonio Nocerino that started the incident, but the referee did not."

But while opponents are protected from Ibra's hands, his teammates still live in fear of his feet.
