Ibra banned for three matches

The League's disciplinary commission has come down hard on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, banning the Milan striker for three matches.

The Sweden international was given a straight red for dissent in Sunday night's 2-1 win away at Fiorentina.

It means that Ibrahimovic is not only to be punished for swearing at the linesman, something he denies, but also reaching the yellow card limit after his booking earlier in the game.

Incidentally, it was Ibrahimovic's first game back after serving a two-match suspension for violent conduct against Bari.

Milan have confirmed they will appeal, but for now Ibrahimovic will miss Milan's games against Sampdoria, Brescia and Bologna.
