Mings Disappointed With FA Ban

share on:

Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings has registered his disappointment at being banned for unintentionally stamping on Ibrahimovic’s head.

The defender will miss matches against West Ham, Swansea, Southampton, Liverpool and Chelsea after being banned for five matches.

Ibrahimovic, who hit Mings with an elbow during an aerial challenge for a corner is banned for three matches.

“I am extremely disappointed at the FA’s decision to ban me for five matches following what was an accidental collision with Zlatan Ibrahimovic,” Mings said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“At no time was there any intentional stamp or a movement to suggest that.

“My foot did not change course and at no point did I try and move my foot towards his head. My only focus was to get back in and defend, conduct like that is not part of my game.

“So for people to deem that I could intentionally stamp on a fellow professional’s head is upsetting.

“It is an action that would not be acceptable in any walk of life, let alone on a football pitch, and one that would never cross my mind.

“I would like to thank Bournemouth and all the club’s fans for their unwavering support this week.

“I can’t wait to get back to playing again and help the team retain our Premier League status for another season.”
