AC Milan have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic underwent keyhole knee surgery today in Rome, with rehabilitation now to begin.
Ibrahimovic damaged his knee when Milan triumphed over Juventus last month, which sparked fears as to whether he could be set for another long spell away from the game. However, it looks as though he has avoided serious injury, and while he did not play for the Rossoneri again in 2020-21, he has missed out on the Euros.
A statement on the club’s official website confirms that Ibrahimović underwent arthroscopic surgery of the left knee at the UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital in Rome.
The joint cleaning operation was successfully performed by surgeons Volker Musahl and Fabrizio Margheritini, in the presence of the Rossoneri medical director Stefano Mazzoni and the orthopedic consultant of the club, Roberto Pozzoni. The procedure went well and the 39-year-old Swede will immediately begin the rehabilitation process.
