On the 14th of November, Ibrahimovic slammed through the back of the Chelsea-man during a set-piece situation which sent him tumbling to the ground.

Talimg to The Guardian, Ibrahimovic said, “The other day in the national team, I gave a tackle to [Spain’s Azpilicueta]. I did it on purpose.

“I’m not ashamed to say it because he did something stupid to my player. Acting big to my player. It was a stupid thing but I would still do it to make him understand: ‘You don’t f**king do that! You don’t have balls to do it against me. But I will show you what happens if you do it to me.’ That’s why I did it.

“What can he say? He will not say it to me but he will say it to my player – who will do nothing because he’s too nice.

“It was not a good thing by me, but I would still do it. That’s me. I’m not ashamed to say it.

“It’s not about missing the play-offs. It’s about making the guy understand you don’t take the p*ss out of somebody laying [on the ground]. You don’t attack a dog that doesn’t talk.

“Attack the one able to do something. It’s too easy to pick on my teammates who are 20 years old and very nice guys. I hope he understands now.”

After finishing as runners-up in their UEFA qualifying group, Sweden, now must navigate a route through the play-offs if they want to play at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022.

Sweden’s opponent will be determined via a draw with an unseeded opponent. Ibrahimovic will not be playing the match as he was shown a yellow card for his foul on Azpilicueta.
