Ibrahimovic set to miss a return to Old Trafford due to Injury

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be a doubt in contention to go against his former club Manchester United in the Europa League due to a thigh injury, with multiple reports coming from Sky in Italy.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently did a scan on Monday 1st of March, 2021 after picking up an injury during AC Milan’s 2-1 victory over Roma on Sunday. Well, he won’t be re-evaluated for the next 10 days.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be unavailable in Serie A games against Udinese and Verona; those fixtures will be played before AC Milan will have to travel to Manchester England for the first tie of their UEL last-16 game set to hold on March 11, 2021. After 7 days, AC Milan will host Manchester United in San Siro for their second leg clash.

Apparently, Zlatan who impressed and won the hearts of many fans during his short stint at Manchester United scored a crucial goal in the Community Shield final and the league cup victory in Wembley.

The former Barcelona forward also played an important role in that campaign’s triumphant Europa League spell, but after a big knee injury against Belgian outfit Anderlecht, Zlatan was unavailable for the remainder matches of the season.

After returning from that lengthy knee difficulty, the active football icon made not more than seven (7) appearance for Manchester United and tends to finish his playing career when he transfered to the United States of America’s club LA Galaxy as a free agent in March 2018. Although, he also made name for himself since coming back to Milan by joining Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as an active football player with over 500 career club goals in February 2021.

AC Milan is currently in second position in Serie A standing with four points margin behind neighbour Inter Milan. An injury boost will see AC Milan welcome an important player Hakan Calhanoglu for their UEL last-16 first leg tie at Old Trafford; Well Hakan will also be unavailable in their next two fixture in the Serie A against Udinese and Verona, also due to a thigh injury (same as Ibrahimovic).

After limping off during their previous game at Roma, Ante Rebic has been given a go-ahead in their next game and subsequently cleared of having any hip hindrances.
