AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an adductor injury during the side’s 2-1 victory over AS Roma, local media have reported.
Ibrahimovic, Milan’s top scorer this season, was forced off during the Serie A contest on Sunday, with coach Stefano Pioli confirming after the match that he had picked up a muscle problem and would be evaluated on Monday.
Italian media reported that tests showed that Ibrahimovic had injured his adductor muscle and said he would be evaluated again in 10 days. He is expected to miss Milan’s next two league games against Udinese and Verona.
Milan, which is second in Serie A, four points behind bitter rival Inter Milan, plays Manchester United in the last 16 of the Europa League, with the first leg scheduled for March 11.
