Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s injury is hopefully not as bad as initially feared, according to one journalist, and he could be back before the end of the season.
The Swede sustained an injury in training at Milanello on Monday morning and there were fears regarding damage to his Achilles tendon, but it was confirmed by the club earlier on Tuesday that he has avoided such a problem and that he will undergo further tests in 10 days.
According to Sky reporters Peppe Di Stefano (via MilanNews), there will be an in-depth analysis of his calf muscle in the follow-up checks some time next week.
If the results are positive, Ibra will go back to running alone, then he will start working with the team and in a month – at the latest – he could be on the field.
The recovery could also be longer also because it would be necessary to get the muscle back to a level where he would be able to play every three days without problems, such is the schedule for the resumption of the season.
Ibrahimovic arrived in Milanello and had lunch with the team and his injury will be monitored at all times.
