GdS: Ibrahimovic now likely to be on the bench against Napoli

By Oliver Fisher -

The feeling is now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be on the bench at the Stadio Diego Maradona for the game against Napoli tomorrow night, a report claims.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic has a good chance of ending up in the squad list for the big match in Naples. In the second part of yesterday’s training session – after initially doing some work on his own – the Swede champion joined the squad, also playing the match at the end.

These are encouraging signs but are not yet definitive, meaning today’s session will be decisive and if the Achilles tendon discomfort does not come back, he will be on the bench for the game against Napoli.

The last word will be with head coach Stefano Pioli, the medical staff and Ibrahimovic himself. Zlatan is ‘trembling with the desire’ to return to action but no risks will be taken that might cause further damage.
