Ibrahimovic’s injury more serious than expected, the operation of the attacker is not excluded

Milan are closely monitoring the rehabilitation of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the Swede could undergo surgery if there are no improvements by the end of the month.

Ibrahimovic suffered a knee injury against Juventus on May 9 and was ruled out of Euro 2020 with Sweden.

On Thursday, Swedish coach Janne Andersson acknowledged that Ibrahimovic’s recovery is not at an advanced stage and Italian media have already reported.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri are carefully monitoring the rehabilitation of the striker, who, however, is not progressing as expected.

Milan will assess Ibrahimovic’s physical condition when his treatment ends at the end of the month.

According to the report from the Italian newspaper, if things do not look good at that time, the club may decide to continue conservative therapy for another two weeks or choose an operation, which will force the 39-year-old to stay off the field for some months.

Ibrahimovic underwent knee surgery four years ago while playing for Manchester United.

However, this case is a little different because the attacker did not tear his cruciate ligament. On paper, this injury is not as severe as the previous one, but surgery remains a possibility if there will be no improvement over the next month.
