Ibrahimovic calls a "ridiculous" suspension for the All-Star Game of the MLS

LA Galaxy attacker Zlatan Ibrahimovic criticized Major League Soccer on Thursday for the "ridiculous" rule that caused him to be suspended last weekend after not participating in the league's All-Star Game. In an apparent effort to encourage their players to participate in the league event, the rule stipulates that those who choose not to attend the All-Star Game must also remain on the bench during the next game of their respective teams. The rule forced Ibrahimovic to miss the Galaxy's 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rapids last Saturday, and told reporters his opinion on the matter Thursday, "I think it's ridiculous, but without comment," Ibrahimovic said. "They can do whatever they want, I come from a different world, I come from the real world." It is what it is. In the end, I respect him and I only feel sorry for my teammates because I could not help them in the game. "But, yes, people are interested in different things, they get lost, for me, it does not matter." Ibrahimovic had played three games in nine days for the Galaxy before the All-Star game and opted not to make a trip to cross the country, to Atlanta, citing fatigue. As a result, he later missed the Galaxy's only trip to Colorado this season, disappointing local fans who They expected to see one of the most important players in the league. Ibrahimovic will be eligible to return in Saturday's game at home, against Minnesota United, before the Galaxy faces Rapids, again, on Tuesday, but this time in California.
