AC Milan have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for Covid-19 and will be taking in a period of quarantine.
Ibrahimovic is the only member of playing and coaching staff at San Siro to have a positive result.
A statement from the Serie A club on their official website read:
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for Covid-19 following a second round of swab tests ahead of tonight’s game against Bodø/Glimt;
“The club has informed the relevant authorities and the player has been promptly placed in quarantine at home.
“All other team members and staff have tested negative.”
Ibrahimovic has enjoyed a productive opening to the 2020-21 campaign for Milan.
He has taken in two appearances so far, with three goals recorded across those outings.
His goal account for the season was opened in a Europa League qualifier against Shamrock Rovers,
before then bagging a brace in Serie A against Bologna.
The self-proclaimed ‘Benjamin Button’ of modern day football had been looking to kick on from that point, having agreed to extend his second spell with the Rossoneri.
