AC Milan deny report of a career-ending injury on Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Serie A side AC Milan has released a statement claiming that Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Achilles tendon is 'perfectly intact'.

The 38-year old former Sweden international has instead sustained an injury to the soleus muscle which will be examined in 10 days.

A statement released on Tuesday morning read: "AC Milan can report that Zlatan Ibrahimovic reported an injury to the soleus muscle of his right calf in yesterday's training session.

"The Achilles tendon is perfectly intact. An examination will be carried out in 10 days."

Zlatan joined Milan on a 6-month deal last December from MLS side LA Galaxy where he had joined from Manchester United.

Milan is preparing for Serie A to restart on June 13, with the league having been suspended since March 9, and they might return without the big forward's services.
