News out of UEFA’s office confirms AC Milan’s Ibrahimovic may have been subjected to discrimination.
According to the report, the 39-year-old Ibrahimovic, who was born in Sweden to Boznian parents, had a night to forget last weekend as Milan visited Red Star in Belgrade, Serbia last week in a UEFA Europa last 32 battle.
While there were no fans at the venue, it is believed that Ibrahimovic was abused by an unidentified individual sitting in the home team’s VIP area.
“An Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has been appointed today to conduct a disciplinary investigation regarding incidents which occurred during the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 match," UEFA said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Red Star apologized to “Ibra” before promising tough action against the alleged offender.
The two sides will meet for the reverse fixture in Italy on Thursday, with the score tied at 2-2.
