By Isak Möller -

For AC Milan, only two players are missing as they prepare to resume training, and perhaps even the season soon. Of all the foreigners who left Italy due to the Coronavirus, Franck Kessie and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are the only ones missing. 

The Swedish forward has received the permission of the club to stay in Stockholm until the training dates are official. Currently, he’s training with Swedish side Hammarby, the team that he owns 25% of.

Kessie, on the other hand, hasn’t rejoined his teammates for a completely different reason. As reported by Corriere Dello Sport (via, there are difficulties in organizing a return flight for the 23-year-old midfielder.
