Ex-Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha has claimed Zlatan Ibrahimovic threatened to hurt him during LA Galaxy’s victory over Real Salt Lake, and accused the striker of disrespect.

The pair clashed twice, before Ibrahimovic scored the 78th-minute winner and celebrated in Onuoha’s face.

Onuoha, 32, says he rejected the Swede’s apology in the dressing room.

“Over here it is just a show for him. A lot of people are scared of him – but he is just a mere mortal,” he said.

“First, he was very arrogant. Secondly, I thought: ‘What is this guy playing at?’
