Galliani denies Ibra delay

Adriano Galliani denies reports Zlatan Ibrahimovic will delay his return to Milan from international duty.

The striker had already caused controversy this week when saying he felt bored of football and no longer had the hunger he used to.

This lead to Swedish manager Erik Hamren hinting Ibrahimovic had asked to stay with the squad until Tuesday's game against Holland despite the fact he'll be suspended.

“Ibrahimovic will return to Milan on Monday and there are no problems,” assured Rossoneri Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

“I spoke to him on the telephone and we'll try to get him back. It all depends on the Sweden manager Hamren, but we hope to have him back, as it would be important to have the player training with us.

“We will have to wait and see what happens.”
