Milan have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic underwent further tests on Thursday and his recovery is going well with a new check to be carried out in around 10 days.
The 38-year-old suffered a calf injury in training last month, and it was initially feared that the issue could be serious with an Achilles tendon problem cited.

Fortunately, the diagnosis was a mere calf muscle problem, and as per the club’s official statement, the Swede is recovering well without any complications and he will be assessed again in 10 days or so.
That’s positive news as ideally he’ll return in the coming weeks and avoid missing too many games with our Coppa Italia semi-final second leg clash with Juventus expected to be played in just over a week’s time before Serie A resumes later this month.
Ibrahimovic has made a positive impact since returning in January, with four goals and an assist in 10 appearances. Coupled with a lack of quality and depth up front, it’s important that Milan see him back in action as soon as possible, albeit without taking any risks which could lead to a fresh setback.
