Ibrahimovic set to be on the sidelines for two months

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be on the sidelines for up to two months after having keyhole surgery on his left knee. 

Ibrahimovic picked up a knee injury during Milan's 3-0 victory over Juventus in May. After picking up the injury, the 39-year-old was later ruled out of Sweden's Euro 2020 campaign this summer having only come out of international retirement in March.

"Zlatan Ibrahimović underwent an arthroscopic lavage to his left knee at the UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital in Rome," a club statement read.

"The procedure carried out by surgeons Volker Musahl and Fabrizio Margheritini, and overseen by AC Milan medical chief Doctor Stefano Mazzoni and the Club's orthopedic consultant Roberto Pozzoni, was a success."

"Zlatan is doing well and will start his rehabilitation immediately."

The Swede is expected to be out until the middle of August.
