Swedish Zlatan Ibrahimovic, striker for Milan, already in good shape after muscle injury suffered at the end of May and could return to compete in Series A this Wednesday in the visit of the Milanese team to Spal de Ferrara. This was reported on Tuesday by coach Stefano Pioli at a press conference at the Milanello sports center, in which he defined the Swedish veteran, 38, as “a lion” ready to accumulate his first minutes in Series A after the pandemic of the coronavirus.
“On a psychological level he is fine, he is a lion. Yesterday (on Monday) he did a good workout and if he does another good workout this afternoon and gives me the go-ahead, I can call him up for the Ferrara game,” Pioli said. Ibrahimovic, former player for Malmoe, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, Paris Saint Germain, Manchester United and Los Angeles Galaxy, was injured on May 25 in the soleus during training and missed the first three games played by Milan in this month of June.
He was not in the second leg of the Italian Cup, in which he was also penalized, against Juventus, nor in the victories at Lecce and against Roma in Serie A. He could return this Wednesday at the Paolo Mazza stadium in Ferrara, where Milan are looking for important points to qualify for the next Europa League.
Ibrahimovic signed for Milan in January after his contract with the US Los Angeles Galaxy expired and he scored four goals in ten games with the Milanese team.
