MN: Ibrahimovic behind in recovery program and will be denied San Siro swan song

By Oliver Fisher -

It seems as though Zlatan Ibrahimovic could have already played his last game for AC Milan with the striker not expected to take part in Sunday’s season finale.

Ibrahimovic has been out for a few weeks now after he sustained a calf problem while warming up to come on during the 2-0 home win against Lecce, and there have been reports suggesting that he is targeting the game against Verona as a San Siro swan song.

However, MilanNews report that it appears ‘very difficult’ for the Swede to be part of Stefano Pioli’s squad for Sunday evening’s game, which will be the last of the Serie A campaign and therefore the final one before his deal expires.

The 41-year-old is still behind in his recovery program and the idea of seeing him on the field for one last hurrah ‘seems very complicated’.

He will certainly be present at the stadium though as he has been at all times when injured, and then it will perhaps be clear whether he will say goodbye to the fans or not.

  1. Zlatan helped Milan a lot.

    He scored 10 goals in first serie a season when he come back. Than he scored 15 goals in serie a, next season. And last season Zlatan scored 8 goals In serie a.

    Zlatan can’t be compared to any one player now. Not even Leao, because raise of Milan started with Zlatan. I would offer Zlatan new contract for 1 year if he mentally thinks he would be able to play 10 or 15 minutes some games. He could be after new striker, giroud and maybe Colombo our 4th striker option.

    1. You guys talk about Colombo like you don’t realise that Lecce has option to buy him permanently in the loan deal.
      And there’s a buy back clause for Milan if Lecce decides to make the loan permanent which I’m sure they will.

      And bringing Colombo back to keep him as a 4th choice striker, that’s dumb thinking man, will that help his growth?

      Colombo is not even ready yet to be a second choice striker at Milan, truth be told his stats have been really bad for a CF, very poor stats.

      1. that is simply not correct lecce has a buy clause set at 2 mil and milan has a buyback clause set at 3 mil and as his value exceeds that ammount by now i can pretty much guarantee that he will be brought back and most likely getting loaned out again.
        We will basically have paid lecce a mil to further develope our player which is a pretty smart move.

        1. his stats though isnt really bad as he has played a combined 1525 minutes and scored 6 and asisted 2 in what is roughly 16 ,9 matches combined and that for a relegation candidate. Not too shabby in my book but i think a year or two more on loan would benefit him nevertheless-

  2. i would extend his contract and give him money per games player like 50 thousand per game but he is zlatan and u have to keep him for the morale and the mentality
