Milan [Italy]September 14 (ANI): AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to miss the UEFA Champions League (UCL) game against Liverpool FC on Wednesday after suffering a premature injury.
The former Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Juventus forward is resting as a precaution after experiencing Achilles tendon pain during training on Tuesday morning, according to Sky Sports.
The 39-year-old Swedish forward will now play no part in the European heavyweight clash at Anfield for AC Milan. The trip to Liverpool will be the Rossoneri’s first Champions League game since they were knocked out of the competition by Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 in March 2014.
Notably, Liverpool and AC Milan have only met twice in European competitions, both matches being Champions League finals. The Reds won on penalties in 2005, but the Rossoneri got their revenge with a 2-1 victory in Athens in 2007.
AC Milan’s last victory against an English side dates back to February 2012, when they beat Arsenal 4-0 in the Champions League. (ANI)
