Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return is said to boost Milan’s opportunities in their Europa League last-16 second-leg tie against Manchester United.
Stefano Pioli has yet to decide on Ibrahimovic’s role, admitting that “he does not have 90 minutes in his legs,” as he has been recalled to Milan’s squad for the match against Manchester United.
Zlatan is expected to play in the decisive second leg at San Siro and has been training for an injury-plagued Milan this week.
“Ibra and Bennacer are recovered, they are important for us and they are among the squad,” Pioli said according to the official club website.
“For the others, [Davide] Calabria, [Rafael] Leao, [Alessio] Romagnoli, and [Ante] Rebic, we have to wait for tomorrow morning. We’ll take a few more hours to decide.”
“He will not be able to have 90 minutes in his legs but his return is important and tomorrow we will see what to do.”
