Ibrahimovic should be available for the clash
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to feature in AC Milan’s Champions League fixture against Liverpool on Wednesday night.
His return to the club, after four months out with injury, on Sunday saw him score against Lazio in their 1-0 victory. The goal made the striker Serie A’s oldest foreign goalscorer at the age of 39.
His comeback for the Italian side is well timed for their trip to Anfield and he is sure to make an impact for the team.
Milan coach Stefano Pioli told reporters after the Lazio match: “Ibrahimovic never gets old and he has great passion, a fire burning inside him.
“He competes to win, he always trains to the maximum and he does so with pleasure. When you are like that you do not feel the years go by.”
