Zlatan Ibrahimovic escapes ban for gun gesture

Paris Saint-Germain Zlatan Ibrahimovic escapes with a written warning for aiming a gun gesture at the Toulouse bench in Ligue 1 earlier this month.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been warned about his future conduct over a gun gesture made against Toulouse earlier this month, but escaped further punishment at a hearing this morning.

Ibrahimovic appeared to mimic firing a gun towards the Toulouse bench four weeks ago, a message reportedly aimed at former Juventus teammate Jonathan Zebina.

A hearing into the incident was held in the Swedish striker's absence today, with the LFP deciding that a written warning was punishment enough.

An LFP statement read: "Upon hearing the player's representative Olivier Letang and Mr Roman Voillemot [Counsel] and reading the letter of explanation from Toulouse FC, the commission has sanctioned for Mr Zlatan Ibrahimovic a reprimand for his inappropriate gesture towards the Toulouse FC bench."

The 32-year-old has hit top form in recent weeks, scoring four times in PSG's 5-0 win over Anderlecht in the Champions League on Wednesday.
