Zltan Ibrahimovic set to miss clash Ac Milan vs Juventus after failing to recover in time from an injury.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out of the Serie A clash between Milan and Juventus on Wednesday.
The Swedish International has been sidelined since being substituted in the 3-1 win at Napoli on November 22.
The former Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain star has missed seven league games for the Serie A leaders, although the Rossoneri have fared well in his absence, winning five and drawing two of those matches.
Stefano Pioli’s side are the only team in Europe’s top five leagues yet to loss a game in top-flight match since the 2019-20 season was initially shut down from last March.
They head into the match with champions Juve at San Siro knowing a win would move them 13 points clear of the Bianconeri, who are fifth with a game in hand.
Ibrahimovic had offered hope he could be fit to face his former club after recent injury trouble, posting training footage to social media on Monday with the caption “Tick tock tick tock”.
Milan Head coach Pioli, though, says the player is not fully fit and admitted to scolding him for causing a stir two days before the game.
“I told him off because, after that footage, I was peppered with phone calls,” Pioli told reporters.
“He is better and he’s working well, but he won’t be in the game tomorrow.”
