MN: Ibrahimovic sustains thigh injury and faces multiple weeks out

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has sustained a muscle problem in his right thigh which will force him to miss at least a couple of weeks, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Ibrahimovic has undergone tests following his return from being with the Swedish national team which have shown a muscle problem in his right thigh.

He will be evaluated week by week and that means that he will definitely be missing for Sunday evening’s match against Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. The 41-year-old centre-forward should be out for at least two weeks as per the source.

It feels like the running theme of Zlatan’s second spell at Milan is continuing as he continues to pick up various physical problems which have stopped him playing with any real continuity.

After battling back following a nine-month absence due to a knee problem, he will now spend some time watching from the sidelines once again.

  1. As much as I appreciate Zlatan we need to get this guy off the team because he can’t do it anymore and it’s not worth it with that wage. A position for him as a coach or some sort would be alright but the situation right now is illogical

    1. Yeah we appreciate the roaring passion shown these days but genuinely physical problem seems invetable, could be overcomed with supporting drugs or maybe there’s something in the training system.

    2. “Not worth it with that wage.”

      Comments such as this show how much you understand his (financial) value. Last time I checked his shirt sales were in TOP3 for Milan and his salary (with taxes) is ~2M€. So he’ll bring in more money for the club than he gets paid. Even if he didn’t play a single match he’d still be good for the team.

  2. I wonder what he was thinking when he joined Swedish team during the break.

    Except to make a statement, it was a foolish move

    1. Maybe he wanna be the oldest goal scorer not only in the club but also in the national team, his muscle wont let em. But that’s the wonder on the lion.

  3. Foolish move Indeed when he was supposed to concentrate on Milan . He should just resign to join our management team.

  4. He obviously can already be characterized as a former player in activity, as they say here in Brazil. There really is no point in keeping him in the squad.
