Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Handed an extension to his ban following challenge on Valenc

UEFA confirmed it had extended the automatic one-match suspension for Ibrahimovic's challenge on Valencia midfielder Andres Guardado in added time of their last-16 first-leg match earlier this month.

The Swede was shown a straight red card in the closing stages in Spain and was already certain to miss the return leg in Paris on March 6.

UEFA's additional punishment applies to the next European club competition for which Ibrahimovic is eligible.

hat's it for me, that's ego talking and nothing more. Three seasons in and he still hasn't resolved the issues in defence. This won't end well, he doesn't have the skills needed to sort out the back four and isn't prepared to bring in those who do. This is the worst team I've seen since the late days of Houllier. Brendan...you're fired.
