Paris - Paris Saint-Germain's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been handed a two-game ban in domestic competition, the French league (LFP) announced on Thursday.

The Swede was punished at a league disciplinary committee meeting following an incident with Romain Hamouma during a 1-0 win at Saint-Etienne last month that saw him booked at the time.

Ibrahimovic will now miss the Ligue 1 trip to Monaco on Sunday, March 1 and the home French Cup quarter-final against the same side the following Wednesday.

He is the capital club's joint leading scorer on 17 goals in all competitions this season alongside Edinson Cavani.
