MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan duo Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic trained with the group today ahead of the weekend clash against AS Roma on Sunday. The defender picked up a injury to his right knee on Monday against Lecce on the road. Ibrahimovic picked up a calf injury about a month ago in training.
The duo will be key to put up a fight against Roma to steal points and claw back into the Europa League spots. Roma currently sit in 5th place, 9 points clear of Milan. The duo will likely be on the bench for the game but the situation could change today and tomorrow.
