Ibra tests positive for virus

AC Milan’s talismanic 38-year-old forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for COVID-19, the Serie A club said in a statement yesterday. Milan said that Ibrahimovic, who will miss the Europa League match at home to Bodo/Glimt later yesterday, was placed in quarantine at home and the health authorities had been informed. The news came one day after his teammate Leo Duarte returned a positive test. However, Milan said the rest of the squad, who were also tested, were negative. Former Barcelona, Juventus, Ajax and Inter Milan forward Ibrahimovic is the highest-profile Serie A player to test positive since play resumed in June following a three-month stoppage. He has scored 14 goals in 22 matches since returning for a second stint at Milan in January, helping revive his team.
