Ibrahimovic could miss Euro 2020 after AC Milan knee injury

Sun 09 May 2021 | 23:54

AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic came out with an injury in the second half of their 3-0 victory over Juventus on Sunday, five weeks before the Swedish team's first match at the Euro 2020.

The 39-year-old sustained the injury while trying to control a ball, in a duel with Bianconeri defender

Matthijs de Ligt

shortly after the hour mark. He persisted for a few minutes before he was replaced by

Ante Rebic

.

However,

Ibrahimovic

’s absence was not felt at all as

Brahim Diaz

,

Ante Rebic

and

Fikayo Tomori

were all on target to give

Milan

all three points possible with a crucial victory over top-four rival

Juventus

.

"Ibra wasn't fit before the game, now he feels pain in his knee and we hope it's nothing too serious,"

Milan head coach

Stefano Pioli

told 

Sky Sport Italia

 at his post-match press conference

.

Ibrahimovic has previously managed to recover from a rupture of the cruciate ligaments in his right knee in 2017. It is therefore his other knee that is affected this time.

The extent of the injury has not been assessed yet, but there are doubts about his ability to feature for Swede national team in the upcoming European Championship.
