AC Milan announced via MilanNews.it that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will need to undergo a six week treatment and recovery program following an injury sustained in the 3-0 win over Juventus about a week and a half ago. The veteran striker was visited by Dr Volker Musahl for an issue with his knee.

As a result Ibrahimovic has reportedly withdrawn from the Sweden side for the Euros which begin in about a month just a short while after coming out of retirement. The striker featured in a few games in the previous international break where he provided 2 assists.

The Swedish Football Association on Twitter have said:

“Today, Zlatan let Janne Andersson know that his injury will stop him from taking part in the Euros this summer. Get well soon Zlatan, we hope to see you on the football pitch soon again!”

The striker has struggled for fitness throughout the season and has missed significant chunks for Milan and now for Sweden too. The striker turns 40 later this year and has renewed with Milan for another year.
