Apparently slapping people in the ear is a thing… Plus Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a big fan of doing it. The MLS is obviously putting Zlatan in a great mood. This, of course, lead to a deserved red card and he was tossed from the match.
Zlatan and his new MLS squad the L.A. Galaxy were in Canada facing the Montreal Impact when this little gem happened.
Michael Petrasso of the Impact, stepped on the 36-year-old Zlatan’s foot and that didn’t go over too well with the MLS’ most famous player.
Petrasso collapsed to the ground … but in classic soccer or fútbol (as they say) fashion, Zlatan went down as well to hide the violent 5-finger act.
This broadway show didn’t knock it out of the part, and he was hit with a red card and got sent out of the game.
It’s Zlatan’s first red card in the MLS since joining the league back in March.
A man down, the Galaxy still pulled out a 1-0 victory.
