Confirmed - Man United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic accepts FA charge and three-match ban
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has accepted a charge of violent conduct and will serve a three-match ban with immediate effect, the Football Association has announced.
Bournemouth will contest Tyrone Mings' alleged violent conduct charge and the Football Association's recommendation he serves a longer ban, Press Association Sport understands.
The 23-year-old Cherries player and Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic were both charged on Monday for incidents in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, where Mings' left boot landed on the head of the 35-year-old before the Swede's elbow struck the defender in the face.
In announcing the charges, the FA argued that the standard three-match ban Mings would serve was "clearly insufficient", and Press Association Sport understands Bournemouth intend to challenge the suggestion of an increased suspension.
