Zlatan Ibrahimovic is currently recovering from knee surgery and AC Milan are hoping to have him back for the Champions League. However, the return date is very uncertain for the time being, a report claims.
The Swede underwent surgery after the Scudetto win and has since been working hard to recover. At 41 years of age, though, the process is obviously taking a bit longer and the parties involved don’t want to rush the matter.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, as cited by MilanNews, Ibrahimovic is still feeling pain in his knee and he’s working hard to strengthen the muscles. His return, as such, remains rather unknown even for the medical staff.
The Champions League clashes against Tottenham, taking place in February and March, remain the goal but nothing should be taken for granted at this stage.
Ibrahimovic will not travel with the team for the Supercoppa Italiana in Saudi Arabia, thus allowing him to work more at Milanello. However, he could get there by his own means just for the game.
