MLS fines Zlatan Ibrahimovic again for putting hands on opponent
Major League Soccer has issued another fine to LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for putting his hands on an opponent.
Ibrahimovic repeatedly jostled the head of Toronto FC defender Nick Hagglund while they were lining up ahead of a free kick in the Galaxy's 5-3 loss last weekend. MLS did not disclose the amount of the fine.
The incident marks the second time in less than a month that the league has fined the Swedish star for violating its policy regarding "hands to the face, head or neck of an opponent."
On Aug. 29, MLS fined Ibrahimovic for putting his hand on the cheek of LAFC forward Lee Nguyen.
Earlier this summer, Ibrahimovic received his first red card in MLS for slapping Montreal's Michael Petrasso.
Also on Friday, MLS issued three more undisclosed fines for simulation or embellishment, sanctioning Real Salt Lake forward Joao Plata, New England Revolution defender Antonio Delamea and D.C. United forward Luciano Acosta.
