AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for COVID 19. The 38 year old striker who turns 39 next month was tested as part of routine testing before his side’s upcoming Europa League qualifier against Norwegian side FK Bodø/Glimt.
The big swede has been in fine form and netted a brace in Milan’s opening game against Bologna on Monday evening. The striker will now quarantine at home and will probably be unavailable for Milan’s trip to Crotone on Sunday afternoon.
His presence was key to Milan’s upturn following the mid-season pandemic enforced break. Milan tactician Stefano Pioli will be hoping Ante Rebić or young Portuguese forward Rafael Leão will be able to fill the hole left by the towering striker.
