LA Galaxy's Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Nigeria-born defender, Nedum Onuoha, has accused Major League Soccer (MLS) star Zlatan Ibrahimovic of disrespect following Real Salt Lake's 2-1 defeat to Los Angeles Galaxy on Monday.

The duo came face-to-face following Ibrahimovic's 78th-minute winner after the Swede walked up to Onuoha and celebrated while muttering something in the former Manchester City centre-back's direction.

"Over here it is just a show for him. A lot of people are scared of him - but he is just a mere mortal," Onuoha told BBC Sport.

"First, he was very arrogant. Secondly, I thought: 'What is this guy playing at?'

"This is not the way you are supposed to do it, especially someone who is meant to be the face of the game here and the game globally.

"I wasn't a fan before - and I'm definitely not a fan now."
