Milan: AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 38, has tested positive for COVID-19, the Serie A club said in a statement on Thursday.

Milan said that the Swede would miss the Europa League match against Bodo later on Thursday. “Having informed the relevant health authorities, the player was promptly placed in quarantine at home,” it said.

Ibrahimovic signed a one-year contract extension with Milan last month which will see him remain at the club for the 2020-21 campaign.

On Monday, the Swedish striker scored twice for the Italian side in his last appearance when the club beat Bologna 2-0.
