Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has said UEFA have set a precedent by clearing Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to play against his former club in the Champions League quarter-finals today.

Ibrahimovic had originally been given a two-match ban after being sent-off in his side’s 2-1 win over Valencia in the first-leg of their last-16 round tie.
However, an appeal against the second match of his ban was upheld last week.

“What matters to me about this decision is the result. The fact that Ibra is going to be able to play,” he told reporters.
