Coronavirus has lost the battle with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, multiple reports across Europe have confirmed
Zlatan was tested positive for COVID-19 in the build-up to AC Milan’s Europa League qualifier against Bodo/Glimt a fortnight ago.
Despite being asymptomatic, ‘Ibracadabra’ had to spend the last two weeks in self-isolation.
Although earlier today, Ibrahimovic’s latest testing yielded a positive result, the 39-year-old has managed to overcome the health issue.

The prolific forward will therefore go back into contention for the upcoming Derby della Madonnina that takes place on October 17.
Unlike Ibra, Leo Duarte and Matteo Gabbia have contracted the virus and will be in the quarantine for the upcoming two weeks.
One of the most highly anticipated fixtures on the Serie A football schedule may still have to be postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak at Inter Milan.
Five Nerazzurri players, including Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Radja Nainggolan, Roberto Gagliardini, and third-choice goalkeeper Ionut Radu, have returned positive results from the last set of testings.
