No punishment for Ibrahimovic

Ligue 1
11/01/2013

The LFP's Disciplinary Commission has taken no action against Zlatan Ibrahimovic over allegations relating to the game against Olympique Lyonnais, and has closed Bastia's stadium for three matches.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Ibrahimovic had a case to answer over an incident in the 40th minute of the OL game when TV pictures showed the Swedish international's boot making contact with the face of Croatian international defender Dejan Lovren. Ibrahimovic dod not attend Thursday evening's hearing, represented by a lawyer and club representatives.

The Commission considered it couldn't establish beyond doubt that Ibrahimovic had intentionally walked on Lovren and as such there was no sanction to be handed down.

Bastia had three cases to answer, relating to home league games against Valenciennes and Marseille, and the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-final against Lille. After the Marseille game, the LFP had provisionally closed Bastia's Stade Armand Cesari and the Corsican club's last home game before the winter break, a 4-2 win over Nancy, took place in Guegnon in Burgundy.

The Commission fined Bastia 30,000 euros for the Valenciennes incidents, closed the stadium for two matches for the Lille game, with a suspended two-point penalty in Ligue 1, and closed the stadium for a further game for incidents outside the ground against Marseille, a match which was played behind closed doors.
