Zlatan Ibrahimovic ruled out for upto eight months

AC Milan have confirmed star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be out for up to eight months after undergoing successful knee surgery on Wednesday.

The announcement comes a few days after the Rossoneri won their first Serie A title after 11 years. 

A statement from the club on Wednesday read; 

"AC Milan announces that Zlatan Ibrahimović underwent an operation on his left knee carried out by Dr. Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet, with the Club's Medical Director Stefano Mazzoni in attendance, at the Hôpital Jean Mermoz in Lyon. 

"The arthroscopy had been planned for a while to definitively resolve the joint's instability through the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, with lateral reinforcement and meniscus reparation. 

"The operation was a complete success and the prognosis is estimated between 7 and 8 months," 

The striker has a year left on his current contract, and it's not clear whether he will extend his stay. 

Ibrahimovic has endured an injury-hit campaign with the new Serie A champions but was influential as the Rossoneri marched to victory in a fulfilling season.
