Sky: Ibrahimovic and Duarte still COVID-positive after latest round of tests

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has still not been able to get rid of the Coronavirus yet, a report claims, nor has his team-mate Leo Duarte.

Ibrahimovic has missed the last three games after he tested positive for the virus on the day of Milan’s Europa League third qualifying round game against Bodo/Glimt at San Siro.

While Milan won all three of those games, albeit two of them with difficulty, attention has now turned to the fixture after the international break – the derby against Antonio Conte’s Inter.

The hope is that Ibrahimovic will be back and fully fit for the game, as all he needs is a negative test to return to training, but with every day that passes the situation grows increasingly worrying.

According to the latest from Sky Italia (via MilanNews), the whole team underwent a new round of tests on Thursday, obviously aside from those who were called up for their national teams.

The others were negative and therefore will be able to train regularly in the afternoon at Milanello, but both Leo Duarte and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are still positive.
