Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reiterated he wasn't insulting the linesman after his three-match ban. “Others should be suspended for life.”
The Milan striker had just returned from a two-game spell on the sidelines when he was sent off in the 2-1 win at Fiorentina for swearing at the assistant referee.
“I was given a three-match ban for talking to myself,” moaned Ibra on Striscia La Notizia.
“I was angry at myself because I lost the ball. If they give me a three-match ban for that, then others should be suspended for life.”
The Swede will therefore miss much of the Scudetto run-in, having already skipped games against Palermo and Inter due to another incident.
“We are a great squad and Milan will win even without me.”
