Zlatan Ibrahimovic Positive for COVID-19


AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for coronavirus.

AC Milan, in an official announcement, say they have informed the “relevant authorities” and Ibrahimovic will now enter a period of quarantine at home.

Interestingly, Ibrahimovic in his usual bravado tweeted: “I tested negative to Covid yesterday and positive today. No symptoms what so ever. Covid had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea.”

However, no other members of the Milan squad have tested positive in the latest round of testing, although defender Leo Duarte did return a positive result on Wednesday and has already begun isolating.

Ibrahimovic has already scored three goals in Milan’s first two games of the new Serie A season.

The 38-year-old former Swedish international signed a new one-year deal at the San Siro this summer following his return to Milan from the LA Galaxy in January.
