Ibrahimovic Handed Two-Game Suspension



PARIS (AFP) – Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain will be without star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for their next two league games after the fiery Swedish international was handed a two game ban on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old – who is the leading scorer in the league with 10 goals – was slapped with the ban by the Professional Football League’s disciplinary commission for his red card last Saturday for a rash challenge on St Etienne goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.

The suspension will see him miss this Sunday’s clash at champions Montpellier and the home match with Nice a week later.

PSG lead Marseille only on goal difference – with their bitter rivals having a game in hand – after they slipped to their first defeat of the campaign, 2-1 at home to St Etienne, and Marseille won 2-0 away at Ajaccio in last weekend’s action.
