Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been suspended for two games after grabbing New York City FC goalkeeper Sean Johnson by the neck during Los Angeles Galaxy’s defeat last weekend.
The MLS Disciplinary Committee said it was sanctioning Ibrahimovic for violent conduct after the incident in the 86th minute of the game.
Ibrahimovic and Johnson wrestled each other to the floor after coming together in the closing stages of Galaxy’s defeat last week.
It is the second retrospective sanction Ibrahimovic has received in recent weeks.
He was hit with an undisclosed fine earlier in the month after being found guilty of diving during his team’s loss against Columbus Crew.
