Zlatan Ibrahimovic has recovered from COVID-19, two weeks after testing positive for the virus. In other words, he will be available for Milan’s important clash against Inter next weekend.
The Swede was stopped by the virus just before the game against Bodo/Glimt, becoming only the second Milan player to test positive. There were doubts about his presence for the derby, but fortunately, he has recovered and well in time.
On his Twitter page, Ibrahimovic published a message – presumably from Milan – confirming that he has recovered from the virus. The quarantine, therefore, is over and the 39-year-old is allowed to return to training.
“You recovered. Health authorities have been informed, the quarantine is over. You can go out!” he wrote, adding “fuck covid-19” and “god is coming for you” as hashtags.

For Milan, obviously, it’s great news as the striker is very important for Stefano Pioli and his team. That being said, Matteo Gabbia has tested positive and there’s the risk that Sandro Tonali will too, called up to the U21 Italy side just like the centre-back.
