Pep Guardiola tells Zlatan Ibrahimovic to cool it

Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic needs to control his temper and accept the decisions made by match officials or he risks letting down the team, according to coach Pep Guardiola.

• La Liga round-up

The Swede, who moved to Barca from Inter Milan in the summer, protested a host of decisions in Barca's 1-1 La Liga draw at home to Villarreal on Saturday and was booked in the 88th minute for a reckless lunge at Diego Godin.

"He's a temperamental player and we need to be a bit careful because we might end up one day with ten players," Guardiola said at a news conference.

"Ibrahimovic needs to be strong and he is capable of doing it as he's a great player," he added. "He can't control the referees' decisions."
