Zlatan Ibrahimovic has resumed full training for the first time since his summer knee surgery, which kept him out of action for nearly nine months.
With an ACL injury, the 41-year-old played the remainder of AC Milan’s 2021-2022 season, assisting the Rossoneri in capturing their first league championship in more than ten years.
Since Milan has only won one of their last nine games across all competitions, he might be included in the team that will take on Torino on Friday.
Milan lost all four of their games, including the Italian Super Cup final, which they lost to Inter Milan 3-0. They also lost to Lazio 4-0, Sassuolo 5-2, and Inter Milan 1-0.
Coach Stefano Pioli said last week that: “Ibrahimovic has always been of great importance for this team.”
“Unfortunately for him, the two games against Tottenham take place soon and right now we don’t know when he will be 100 per cent.”
“I hope with all my heart that he can come back soon. Few people would do what he’s doing to come back from such a difficult and complicated injury.”
“He doesn’t give up. But not having the guarantee, I had no other choice and I communicated it to him a few days ago.”
Ibrahimovic is the all-time leading scorer in Sweden with more than 570 goals. He has won numerous championships while playing for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester United.
