The Sweden international has been cleared of any wrongdoing by France's governing soccer body after being summoned for allegedly stomping on a Lyon player.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has avoided punishment from the LFP for a suspected stomp after the authorities could not establish whether it was intentional or not.

The incident occurred during a match between the Parisians and rival Lyon on Dec. 16 when Ibrahimovic's boot connected with Dejan Lovren's head.

Subsequently, the former AC Milan striker was called to a hearing on Jan. 10 to present his defense and after reviewing his case the LFP decided against handing him a punishment.

"After hearing counsel from the player and his representatives at PSG, the report compiled by the referee and after review of the video images, the Commission felt that they could not establish without doubt that the protagonist had voluntarily walked on his opponent and that therefore there was no reason to punish the player," read the LFP's official statement.

Ibrahimovic has been in fine form this season, netting 18 goals from 16 league appearances and this verdict will come as some relief to the capital side's title hopes.
