Ibrahimovic set to face Man Utd after returning to training
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set for a reunion with Manchester United, his former team in the Europa League after the AC Milan striker returned to training on Tuesday.
Ibrahimovic was forced to sit out the first leg of the last-16 tie at Old Trafford due to thigh injury, with the Rossoneri managing to earn a 1-1 draw against the Red Devils in his absence.
Milan could even have come away with a victory were it not for some poor finishing and a controversial VAR decision, but they will now likely have their star striker available for the return fixture at San Siro.
Ibrahimovic suffered a thigh muscle tear after featuring in Milan’s 2-1 win at Roma in Serie A on February 28.
He was also unavailable for selection during Milan’s 2-1 loss to Napoli at the weekend, but did manage to return to light training on Monday.
Ibrahimovic has since taken part in a full session with the first team, and Stefano Pioli will now have to decide whether or not to start him against the Red Devils on Thursday.
