Zlatan Ibrahimovic has explained why he kicked Seamus Coleman in the head during Manchester United’s draw at Everton, insisting it wasn’t a deliberate incident.


The 35-year-old scored the visitors’ goal at Goodison Park with a brilliant first-half lob, but was frustrated when Leighton Baines claimed a point for Ronald Koeman’s side with a penalty one minute from time.

Ibrahimovic has stressed there was no intent in what was a hard-fought battle on Merseyside with the prospect of a retrospective ban looming large should the FA deem otherwise.

“They played hard and I heard one of the commentators say I kicked someone in the head on purpose,” Ibrahimovic told MUTV.

“It was a 50-50 duel. He pulled me down and I tried to avoid touching him.”
