Zlatan to be Investigated

zlatanibrahimovicgungesture_275x155The French football authorities are investigating Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic who made a gun gesture towards the Toulouse bench.

Zlatan, 32, will appear before a French league disciplinary commission later this month after he mimicked pointing a gun at the Toulouse bench while he was been substituted in the second half following an altercation with Toulouse defender Abel Aguilar in last weekend’s 2-0 victory.

On Thursday, Toulouse manager Alain Casanova said: “They’re not gestures that I like or appreciate on a football pitch.”

Eurosport, citing sources at Toulouse, suggested it had been aimed at defender Jonathan Zebina. The Toulouse substitute and Ibrahimovic had been team-mates at Juventus, where they made headlines for a clash at training.

The French football authorities will also gather evidence about the incident from Toulouse, the assistant referee and the fourth official.
