“A lot of times when you have big players in Europe or even South America, there’s a little more respect for the big players. And MLS is a little more ‘Okay, well I’m going to
show you’ kind of attitude rather than a little of that respect."
-- LA Galaxy coach Sigi Schmid
on the ejection of Zlatan Ibrahimovic,
the first red card issued
to the Swedish star since he moved to MLS, in the first half of the Galaxy's 1-0 win at Montreal. Ibra was sent off
when he slapped Michael Petrasso
in the head after the
Impact defender stepped on his foot off the ball. Petrasso was issued a yellow card.
