Ibrahimovic injury news: Update on recovery, possible Milan return date lined up

Zlatan Ibrahimovic underwent further tests on his injured calf on Tuesday as Milan await his return to action with a potential return game being eyed.

The 38-year-old rejoined us in January and has scored four goals while providing one assist in 10 appearances prior to the coronavirus lockdown coming into effect.

Having suffered an injury blow on his return to training though, he has since been sidelined and now it’s suggested that there were positive results after his latest round of testing.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the results showed that he is making positive progress in his comeback, and he will in turn step up his recovery in the coming days.

Further, it’s suggested that he could be back in action against Roma at San Siro on June 28, but naturally much will depend on how he continues to make progress before then and if he can steer clear of any fresh setbacks.

From a Milan perspective, it may well be sensible to proceed with caution too, as with games almost every three days starting from the end of June, we’ll certainly need Ibrahimovic fully fit and leading the line for us if we’re to enjoy a successful end to the campaign.
