Injury update: Ibrahimovich to feature in the Euros
Zlatan Ibrahimovich may not be out of football for so long as earlier speculated.
The Swedish striker picked up an injury in a Series A match and was speculated to have broken his ACL.
According to Peppe Di Stefano of Sky Italia, as cited by Milan News, the 39-year-old underwent a few tests with the doctor that took care of his injury back in 2017. The results were positive, ruling out problems with the cruciate ligament.
Ibrahimovic is having issues with his cartilage but he will be able to recover in three weeks, which means that he should be able to feature for Sweden at the Euros. Positive news for Sweden but also Milan as they feared a serious injury.
Having said that, the Rossoneri will be without their star for the rest of the season and although it’s a blow, Ante Rebic has done well in his absence. The Croatian has four goals in his last two games in the centre-forward role.
