Pioli discusses ‘ailments’ of Ibrahimovic but assures he still has ‘great determination’

By Isak Möller -

One of the key men that Stefano Pioli will be able to rely on in this Scudetto race – both on and off the pitch – is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Fortunately, he’s available and free of injury currently. 

Ibrahimovic has struggled with his body this season and age is starting to take its toll. However, the Swede won’t abandon his side and continues to work extremely hard to constantly be at Pioli’s disposal.

During today’s press conference at Milanello (read here), Pioli was asked about Ibrahimovic and he provided reassuring news on his condition. Most likely, we will see the striker tomorrow evening, albeit not from start.

“Ibrahimovic lives with his ailments but he does it with great determination and will, so he is available,” he stated.

Milan are three points clear at the top of the standings and need to continue their winning streak in order to claim their first Scudetto in eleven years. Ibrahimovic will be an important figure in that pursuit, there is no doubt about it.
