Manch­ester United’s Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic has apol­o­gised to fans af­ter pick­ing up his fifth yel­low card of the sea­son against Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday, which rules him out of their next game against Ar­se­nal. The 35-year-old, who scored twice in the 3-1 win over Swansea to help lift his team to sixth in the ta­ble, was booked for a tackle on mid­fielder Leroy Fer in the 76th minute at the Lib­erty Stadium and in­curs an au­to­matic one-game ban.

“I’m sorry I am sus­pended for the next game. I wish I wasn’t as it’s a game I re­ally wanted to play in,” Ibrahi­movic told the club’s web­site. ( “Ev­ery time I try to play my game by be­ing strong, and go­ing into the tack­les, or what­ever it is, I get a yel­low card... In Eng­land, the foot­ball is hard, it’s phys­i­cal.” He added he had not reg­is­tered why he was booked as he was “too tired and did not hear (the ref­eree)”. The Premier League re­sumes on Nov. 19.
