Nedum Onuoha has rejected Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s apology after a fiery MLS encounter between Real Salt Lake and LA Galaxy over the weekend.
The duo squared up in the 2nd half after the ex-United striker appeared to catch Onuoha with a stray elbow.
The two were involved in another flash point later in the game when Ibrahimovic aggressively celebrated in Onuoha’s face after scoring the winning goal.
However, he sought Onuoha out to say sorry after the final whistle, but the latter was having none of it.
“He came in to apologise after the game because from 60 minutes in he’s saying he’s going to do me, he’s going to hurt me for that game,” Onuoha said after the match.
“This is a guy who is the face of MLS, as he calls himself, but this is the way that he plays on the field? So I don’t care. If someone comes in and says that to me, I don’t care. I’m not going to accept his apology. It’s unacceptable.”
