OVERVIEW OF: Europa League: Ibrahimovic denied chance to face Manchester United
AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will sit out their Europa League round-of-16 clash with Manchester United, ESPN reports.
Ibrahimovic was substituted during Milan’s 2-1 victory over AS Roma on Sunday, having picked up an abductor muscle injury.
The Swede will be assessed in 10 days’ time in order to determine the full period required on the sidelines.
And that will be March 11, the same day Milan plays United.
Ibrahimovic’s absence comes as he is due to host the annual San Remo music festival, which takes place from March 2-6.
His commitments were however not due to keeping him out of the matches against Udinese (March 3) and Hellas Verona (March 7).
However, this injury will keep him out of both matches.
