After having been kept out for a long time by an Achilles tendon problem, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is hoping to soon recover his best form.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes how the Swede has recovered from his injury and has been back on the pitch in the last three games as a substitute but it is clear that he is still very far from his best condition. The international break could have been used to allow the Swede to improve his state, but he has been called up by Sweden despite being suspended for their first play-off.
He wants to go to the World Cup with his country but will have to watch from the sidelines on Thursday in the first match against the Czech Republic. A game against Poland awaits in the event of a victory against the Czechs, so Zlatan will still have the opportunity to train and try to improve his physical condition.
Head coach Stefano Pioli continues to say that the 40-year-old is getting better even though his playing time suggests he is being bubble wrapped. Ibra could be vital for the Scudetto sprint because of his experience, leadership and goals, and he wants to prove that he can still be decisive to earn a renewal.
