But ibrahimovic could be in trouble following an incident which transpired on the pitch.
Video footage showed ex-Manchester United striker ibrahimovic twice look at Libyan international El-Monir’s position, before leaping up and elbowing the defender in the face.
The incident occurred minutes after the veteran forward and his teammates had been left furious with the match official
over his decision not to take sterner action against the left- back for a challenge on Galaxy midfielder Joe Corona.
