Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss Milan’s game against Genoa next weekend, having received a red card against Parma last night. Although the card in itself certainly was debatable, a one-game ban is the minimum.
Just like Ante Rebic, the 39-year-old was sent off for dissent as he commented on the Fabio Maresca’s officiating. There was, however, confusion between the two as the referee thought he heard an insult, while Ibrahimovic actually ‘it seems strange’.
The sporting judge will make a verdict on Tuesday and the referee’s report will obviously be an important part of the puzzle, as reported by Sky Italia (via MilanNews). A straight red normally results in a two-game ban, but that might not be the case here.
The sporting judge could decide to suspend the striker for just one game, but Milan will be ready with an appeal if the decision is indeed two games. Either way, the Rossoneri won’t able to stop him from missing the game against Genoa.
