AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to miss the final couple of games of the season following an injury sustained in the 3-0 victory over Juventus this past weekend. Gianluca di Marzio via is reporting that there was initially quite a bit of concern over the veteran striker but it seems to be a minor problem.

Stefano Pioli spoke at the press conference via Milan’s website on the condition of the striker and said:

“The only sour note from a near-perfect night. He’s got a slight knee problem and will not be available for tomorrow or for Sunday. We’ll keep tabs on his development over the next week. ... Our aim is to bring our own characteristics to bear and to fully profit from them. But we will also look to match up with their positions, as they can gift you chances. A mature team makes the right choices at the right time.”

Sky Italia via are reporting that Pioli is leaning towards starting Ante Rebic in place of Ibrahimovic for tomorrow’s crucial tie against Torino.
