Ibrahimovic out for seven months

Milan have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone keyhole surgery and is expected to be out of action for at least seven months. The 40-year-old was expected to undergo the procedure before making a decision about his long term future with the club.

Milan confirmed the news in a statement on the clubs official website:

AC Milan announces that Zlatan Ibrahimović underwent an operation on his left knee carried out by Dr Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet, with the Club’s Medical Director Stefano Mazzoni in attendance, at the Hôpital Jean Mermoz in Lyon.

The arthroscopy had been planned for a while to definitively resolve the joint’s instability through the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, with lateral reinforcement and meniscus reparation.

The operation was a complete success and the prognosis is estimated between 7 and 8 months.”
