Ibrahimovic tests positive for coronavirus


AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for coronavirus, the club confirmed on Thursday.

The news was confirmed by the Serie A club in a short statement that confirmed the news ahead of the Europa League game against Bodo/Glimt.

Milan confirmed they have “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 signed a one-year contract extension with Milan last month which will see him remain at the club for the 2020-21 campaign.

And he got the season off to a winning start against Bologna on Monday, scoring both goals in a 2-0 win.

Ibrahimovic returned to Milan last December after leaving MLS side LA Galaxy.
