Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings will serve a five-match ban for violent conduct after a Football Association panel ruled he deliberately stood on the head of Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 23-year-old landed with his studs on the forward’s head during Saturday’s fiery 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Ibrahimovic elbowed Mings shortly after, and accepted a three-match ban.
Bournemouth said they are “extremely disappointed” with the FA’s decision.
The Premier League club added they “find it extraordinary that the charges can be described as ‘proven’ when there is absolutely no evidence to prove the incident was intentional.”
Mings will miss Bournemouth’s next five league fixtures but is due to return for the match at Tottenham on Saturday, 15 April
