ROME: AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was allowed to end his quarantine period and could return to action after being found negative for COVID-19, the Serie A club announced earlier this morning.
Milan through a statement issued confirming that the Swedish international striker was found to be negative in two consecutive tests which are part of the procedure to end the quarantine period.
“You have recovered !. The authorities say the quarantine period is over, you can leave !,” Ibrahimovic wrote on his social media site.
The announcement came a day after Milan said Ibrahimovic was positive for COVID-19, prompting the question of whether he could play when he met local rivals Inter Milan on October 17.
The first time Ibrahimovic was found positive was on September 24.
The local clash still raises doubts after two Milan players and five Inter players are currently undergoing quarantine.
Ibrahimovic’s absence saw Milan start well off in second place in Serie A after recording victories in all three league games.
