Video: Ibrahimovic grabs New York goalkeeper by the throat in moment of madness during another LA Galaxy defeat

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was lucky to escape a red card after choking New York shot-stopper Sean Johnson to the ground on Saturday.

The Galaxy fell to a third successive defeat at Dignity Health Sports Park, with goals from Heber Araujo dos Santos and Maximiliano Morales sealing a comfortable win for the visitors.

Ibrahimovic also grabbed headlines for the wrong reasons after a moment of madness during which he appeared to grab Johnson by the throat and force him to the floor.

The Swede was given a booking for his actions, but he could quite easily have been given his marching orders, as Galaxy’s early MLS season slump continued.
