Zlatan positive for COVID-19

Milan have officially announced Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for COVID-19 and confirmed the rest of the team have tested negative.

Corriere della Sera revealed Ibrahimovic tested positive for coronavirus in the second round of swabs and the Rossoneri have confirmed.

After confirming Leo Duarte’s positive test, the Milan players were subjected to another round of testing: “AC Milan announce that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for the swab performed for today’s match, Milan-Bodø/Glimt.

“We have informed the competent health authorities and the player was promptly placed in home quarantine.

“All the other swabs carried out on the team group were negative.”

Coach Stefano Pioli must therefore cope without Ibrahimovic in the third qualifying round of the Europa League against Norwegian League leaders Bodo/Glimt.
