THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION has confirmed that Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic has accepted a three-match ban for his elbow on Tyrone Mings.

The prolific attacker will consequently miss the FA Cup quarter-final at Chelsea on Monday, followed by the Premier League matches against Middlesbrough and West Brom.

He is due to return in the home game with Everton on 4 April but remains eligible for United’s Europa League clashes with Rostov.

The news will come as a major blow to manager Jose Mourinho, with Ibrahimovic having scored 26 goals in all competitions thus far this season.

Mings, meanwhile, has also been charged with violent conduct, following an alleged stamp on Ibrahimovic, but he is yet to be told how long he will be banned for.

United are currently sixth in the Premier League table, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
