AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic could face four-match ban after dismissal against Fiorentina

Swede is given his marching orders for an outburst at the referee in the 2-1 win at Fiortneina after having just returned from a two-game suspension
Serie A table toppers AC Milan will possibly have to make do without the services of star attacker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for up to four matches in the wake of the Sweden international's red card against Fiorentina on Sunday.

The former Inter striker returned to the Rossoneri starting XI in the away match against the Viola after serving a two-game ban following his direct red card against Bari on March 13, but his comeback wasn't as successful as he would have hoped.

Ibrahimovic first picked up a yellow card in the 77th minute before being shown a straight red about ten minutes later following an outburst towards the assistant referee.

The striker's eighth yellow card of the season results in an automatic one-match ban, while the Italian FA are likely add two further games for insulting the linesman and an additional one for receiving his second red card in two consecutive games, totalling to four matches. A decision on the full extent of Ibra's suspension is expected on Tuesday.

The highly rated attacker has so far scored 14 Serie A goals for AC Milan. The Rossoneri will entertain Fiorentina next Saturday.
