Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of action for two weeks

Zlatan Ibrahimović has signed a new one-year contract to stay at Milan for the 2020-21 season.

AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be out of action for at least ten days after sustaining a muscle injury in a 3-1 win over Napoli at the weekend, the Serie A club said on Monday.

The 39-year-old scored two goals before suffering the injury, as the Serie A leaders recorded their first league win in Naples in more than 10 years.

A spokesman for the club said it could take two to three weeks for Ibrahimovic to recover.

The Swedish forward, who has scored 10 goals in six league games this season, will likely miss Europa League matches against French Lille and Group H leaders and Scotland’s Celtic on Thursday and December 3, respectively. .

Ibrahimovic could also miss the final group game against Sparta Prague. Milan are second in Group H with two wins from three games.

The Serie A leaders have 20 points after eight league games and face 15th-ranked Fiorentina on Sunday.
