Zlatan Ibrahimovic Apologises to Man Utd Fans For Missing Match vs Arsenal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Apologises to Man Utd Fans For Missing Match vs Arsenal

Manchester United will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic when they take on Arsenal after the international break – and the striker has apologised to the fans.

Ibrahimovic starred in United’s 3-1 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, scoring the second and third goal of the game.

However the Sweden international also got booked during the contest – his fifth yellow of the season – meaning he will miss United’s next match against the Gunners.

Speaking to MUTV, the former AC Milan and PSG forward admitted he was desperate to play against Arsene Wenger’s side.

“Every time I try to play my game by being strong and going into the tackles, or whatever it is, I get a yellow card.

“I don’t know what the explanation was because I think I was too tired and I didn’t hear him (referee Neil Swarbrick). It is what it is. In England, the football is hard, it’s physical.”

Ibrahimovic continued, “I just have to accept it. I’ve got to be professional. I’m sorry I am suspended for the next game.

“I wish I wasn’t as it’s a game I really wanted to play in. But I have trust in my team-mates and the team and I know they can do fine also without me.”

Without Zlatan in the team, United may have to lean upon Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney to provide the goals.

Will they be up to the task, let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
