Zlatan Ibrahimovic operated in June on the left knee, will remain sidelined at least until mid-September announced his trainer Stefano Pioli this Sunday: “Physically he is better. He has yet to resume with the team. If everything goes as we hope, he will be able to return with us during the international break (from August 30 to September 8) ”.
As he approaches his 40th birthday (he will have them on October 3), Ibra had to give up the Euro this summer for his return to the Swedish selection. Injured since May during a match against Juventus, the AC Milan striker will be replaced by Olivier Giroud (34), who arrived free from Chelsea.
