Zlatan Ibrahimovic gets two-game ban after grabbing keeper by the neck

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
has been hit with a two-match ban in America's MLS after appearing to grab an opponent's neck.
The incident occurred on Saturday when Ibrahimovic's Los Angeles Galaxy were beaten 2-0 by New York City
.
Former Manchester United
striker Ibrahimovic had just lobbed New York goalkeeper Sean Johnson when the two players went head to head after the rebound had been sent over the bar by Chris Pontius.
Johnson barged into Ibrahimovic, who put his hand on the goalkeeper.
Twenty-nine-year-old Johnson threw himself down and rolled around on the floor, before referee Chris Penso issued he and Ibrahimovic with yellow cards.
But Ibrahimovic's punishment was increased on Friday when the MLS issued him with a suspension that will see him miss Sunday's home game against the Colorado Rapids and the trip to Orlando City on May 24.
Ibrahimovic was accused of another act of violence at the end of April when former Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha was caught by a flying arm.
Real Salt Lake's Onuoha later claimed that Ibrahimovic had threatened to hurt him with trash talk during the game.
