Sky journalist explains why Ibrahimovic has returned to Sweden: “He will return on Sunday”

By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss out on Milan’s clash with Genoa this weekend due to the red card he received against Parma. The sporting judge may have decreased the ban to just one game, but it’s still a blow for the Rossoneri. 

The 39-year-old has struggled with quite a few injuries this season but he has always been an important figure when on the pitch. Therefore, it’s certainly not ideal for Milan to be without him on Sunday morning, but there’s no need to dwell on it.

In the meantime, Ibrahimovic has returned to Sweden as he won’t be available for the game. The Rossoneri will have the final training session tomorrow morning, which he will miss. Peppe Di Stefano explained the trip on Sky Italia (via MilanNews).

“After today’s training, Ibra left for Sweden, he will return on Sunday. I don’t know if it will be in time for the game or not. For sure, he will miss tomorrow’s training session.

“He will stay with his family for a while and from Monday he will be available again to work with the team again ahead of the game against Sassuolo, for which will be available. And I will add, as a starter,” he concluded.

The game against Sassuolo will take place mid-week, more specifically on Wednesday evening, and thus it’s important that the striker is back in training as soon as possible.
