The Swedish striker clashed with Simon Kjaer in United's 2-1 loss to the Turkish outfit in the Europe League on Thursday evening.

Ibrahimovic appeared to grab the defender by his throat and had to be separated by Jose Mourinho on the touchline.

However, Kjaer was not too pleased with the striker's behaviour, branding him an arrogant player.

"I actually didn't hear what he said but I do know that he wasn't happy," Kjaer told Swedish Channel 9 . “But that's the way I know him from the pitch.

"He is the kind of chest-puffing player, who is arrogant. That is his way of playing.

“My way of playing is to mark him as tightly as possible and to give him as little space as possible, because he is a good player.

“It is a part of football and I don't take it too seriously. It's not the first time I've played against him and I know how he reacts. It is not a problem. It is, like I said, a part of the game.”
