by | Oct 16, 2021 11:28

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been included in the Milan squad to face Hellas Verona on Saturday night.

The Swede has only played once in Serie A since returning from the knee injury he suffered towards the end of last season.

He returned with a goal in the 2-0 win over Lazio in Serie A but has since struggled with an Achilles problem.

The 40-year-old is now back in training and has been included in the matchday squad when the Gialloblu visit San Siro tonight.

Olivier Giroud is also back and is expected to start the game, while Antonio Mirante, who arrived as a free agent earlier this week, is not ready to feature.

Mike Maignan suffered a wrist injury during the international break, Theo Hernandez and Brahim Diaz are out with coronavirus, while Junior Messias and Tiemoue Bakayoko still struggle with injuries.

Milan squad to face Verona:

Goalkeepers: Jungdal, Tatarusanu
Defenders: Ballo-Toure, Calabria, Conti, Gabbia, Kalulu, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Tomori
Midfielders: Bennacer, Castillejo, Kessie, Krunic, Saelemaekers, Tonali
Attackers: Giroud, Ibrahimovic, Leao, Maldini, Pellegri, Rebic
