Apologies to the Colorado Rapids home crowd, but they aren’t going to get their fill of Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday.

Ibrahimovic, 36, is going to miss the match with a one-match suspension imposed by MLS for skipping the All Star Game while healthy.

The big Swede did not want to play three matches in a 7-day span, and so elected to skip Wednesday’s reunion with Juventus. From LAGalaxy.com:
The MLS All Star Game may still be a big draw for neutral fans, and Zlatan’s participation would be make us more interested in the match.
The rule makes sense in that regard, but certainly brings an exhalation of relief from Rapids supporters hoping for a win.
