Tyrone Mings to serve five-match ban….

Tyrone Mings and Zlatan Ibrahimovic

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. Speaking after Saturday’s match, Mings denied any intent. He said: “It was a good battle, you know exactly what you are going to get playing against him [Ibrahimovic]. There will be things highlighted more than others, but I enjoyed it.” Mings will miss Bournemouth’s next five league fixtures but is due to return for the match at Tottenham on Saturday, 15 April.
