AC Milan face Liverpool FC in the UEFA Champions League tonight at Anfield and the side have been dealt a blow as veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out of the game with an injury.

Stefano Pioli in his press conference yesterday said via Milan’s website:

“Zlatan has had an inflammation; he gave it a go this morning but it’s useless to take risks at this point of the season. I see AC Milan with Zlatan and I absolutely think we’ll have him back soon. Absences are a part of football; I’ll need to choose between Ante and Olivier but we have the cover.”

On Olivier Giroud he said:

“He won’t be able to complete a full 90 - being out for two weeks is tough - but he’s doing well and is available. Ante, meanwhile, is going into this one following a brilliant performance; I’m sure that they will be ready and that both of them have characteristics that fit well with the rest of the team.”
