GdS: Optimism filters from Milan regarding Ibrahimovic – the latest on his recovery

By Oliver Fisher -

Some more good news has arrived regarding the injury that Zlatan Ibrahimovic sustained last week, according to a report.

The Swede was forced to leave a training session early last Monday and while it was initially feared there could be Achilles tendon damage, tests have confirmed an overstretched calf.

Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) reports that the 38-year-old’s recovery is continuing smoothly, as revealed by the medical check carried out on Thursday which also essentially confirmed the recovery time of 4-5 weeks.

At Milanello there are those who would lean more towards Ibrahimovic taking the full amount of time in order to ensure there is minimal risk of re-aggravation, but the importance of the former PSG man is known.

In ten days, therefore, a new medical examination will be carried out to understand the developments. If everything goes as smoothly as hoped, the attacker may also resume working partially in a group after the new check.

At this point, a return to action in early July cannot be ruled out, perhaps before or in between July 4-7th when the Diavolo will face Lazio first and then Juventus.
