Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s effect will still be felt on Sunday at San Siro even though he will not take part in the game against Hellas Verona.
It was confirmed during Pioli’s pre-match press conference on Saturday that a number of players are battling problems ahead of Sunday’s game against Hellas Verona.
In particular, Ibrahimovic has not been called up as he is suffering from flu-like symptoms as per the Rossoneri boss, while Simon Kjaer will also miss out for the same reasons.
That means Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic will get the nod up front, while Mateo Musacchio will take the place of Kjaer.
According to MilanNews.it – who cite Sky Italia – Ibrahimovic ‘wanted to make his presence felt in San Siro’ despite the fact he won’t be involved in the game.
The Swede has apparently booked an entire 28-person Sky Box for the game this afternoon, and each seat will have the number 21 above the armchair.
