SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake defender Nedum Onuoha and LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic made international headlines when the two got into a spat during and after Sunday’s match.

The incident began when Ibrahimovic brought down Onuoha during the game, leading to a yellow card on the Swedish-born superstar.

Later in the match, Ibrahimovic scored what became the decisive goal in the 78th minute and proceeded to taunt and have words with Onuoha.

Afterwards, Ibrahimovic entered RSL’s locker room to apologize for his actions in the game, but Onuoha refused to accept his apology.

Fans React

Fans of the game took to social media to offer mixed reactions from the ordeal.

Some fans admired Ibrahimovic’s passion and killer instinct.

Others felt that he had crossed the line and had been doing so for quite some time.

Real Salt Lake will face the LA Galaxy again on September 25 at Rio Tinto Stadium.
