Tuttosport: Ibrahimovic avoids long ban after meeting with prosecutor – what was said

By Isak Möller -

The brawl between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku certainly made the headlines, so much that almost two weeks after the game it’s still being talked about. However, it seems this will end shortly. 

Yesterday, as highlighted by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the Swedish striker was heard by FIGC’s prosecutor and the explained the brawl. The prosecutor, after hearing Ibrahimovic’s side of the story, didn’t raise any charges against him.

The ‘voodoo’ comment wasn’t deemed as ‘aggravated discrimination’, which was the expected outcome as Ibrahimovic was referring to a story from the players’ time in England. This, of course, was well documented and backed up by the English newspapers.

Therefore, the Swede won’t risk a long suspension but he will keep the punishment already handed out to him, of course. And that is just a one-game ban for the red card, which he will serve in next season’s edition of Coppa Italia.
