Ibrahimovic suspended for Milan derby

ROME, Italy, March 15- Serie A leaders AC Milan's Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was ruled out on Monday of their crucial derby with Inter Milan as he was handed a three match suspension for his red card in last weekend's match with Bari.Ibrahimovic will miss the match on April 3 after being sent-off for aiming a karate chop into the ribs of Bari defender Marco Rossi in the 74th minute of the 1-1 draw last Saturday.

Milan – who lead defending champions Inter by five points – have appealed the decision and it will be heard on either Thursday or Friday this week, though, most observers feel they have little chance of winning it.

Should the decision be upheld then Milan will have to do without their leading scorer – he has scored 14 goals in Serie A this season – for not only the derby match but also next Saturday’s away to Palermo and against Fiorentina.
