Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent off for slapping opponent

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was sent off by the video assistant referee for slapping an opponent as LA Galaxy beat Montreal Impact in Major League Soccer.

Ibrahimovic, 36, reacted angrily after Michael Petrasso slyly stepped on his foot, slapping him across the back of his head.

After watching a replay, referee Ismail Elfath showed captain Ibrahimovic the 13th red card of his career.

Surprisingly, 10-man Galaxy still secured a 1-0 victory as Ola Kamara’s 75th-minute strike settled the contest.
