Vitiello: ‘Reflections in progress’ for ‘hero’ Ibrahimovic after latest set-back

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will have the biggest say on what his future is at AC Milan but the signs coming from his body are not encouraging.

In his latest column for MilanNews, Anto Vitiello writes how the injury sustained by Ibrahimovic during the warm-ups of Milan’s 2-0 win against Lecce was almost moving. The Swede had a limp and is accompanied by a member of the medical staff to the dressing room, knowing he had a problem.

The choice on the end of his career at Milan is up to the player alone as he will be the one to say when enough is enough, but the signals to date are not encouraging from a physical point of view.

First Ibrahimovic had the operation on his knee, then nine months of rehabilitation and suffering followed. His long-awaited return to the field and the goal against Udinese crowned him as the oldest scorer in the history Serie A.

However, he suffered another muscle issue with the Swedish national team before returning and then he got himself fit enough to be named on the bench for the Lecce game, before getting another calf problem.

Vitiello concludes: “Reflections in progress for Ibra. Whatever he chooses, he will always be a hero for this club.”
