Zlatan Ibrahimovic receives two-match ban for grabbing a goalkeeper by the neck

Real Salt Lake v Los Angeles Galaxy

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a controversial player throughout his career.

And now, at 37 years old, the LA Galaxy striker has landed himself in more trouble for an altercation involving New York City goalkeeper Sean Johnson last weekend.

Ibrahimovic has received a two-match man from the MLS after he grabbed Johnson's neck and pushed him to the ground in frustration.

Johnson certainly over-reacted as he fell down and shouted in pain, but Ibrahimovic should know by now that you simply can't grab an opponent's neck.

Both players were given a yellow card at the time, with New York City winning 2-0.

Johnson said after the game: "Zlatan is a talented player - he obviously knows what he is doing. He is a clever boy and you know, it is a part of the game.

"I would be frustrated if I were him too, you know. Can't blame him for his frustration at that point in the game."

Check out the incident below and decide for yourselves if Ibrahimovic deserved to be banned.

Ibrahimovic will now miss LA Galaxy's next two games against Colorado and Orlando City. He's scored nine goals in 10 games so far this season.
