Milan veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reportedly not take part against Liverpool at Anfield due to an Achilles problem.
Sky Sport Italia reports the Swede is not in the squad for the big game against the Reds in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The former Paris Saint-Germain striker will miss the opening game in the prestigious competition due to an Achilles tendon problem.
Ibrahimovic returned from a knee injury against Lazio last weekend, when he scored in a 2-0 win at San Siro.
The soon-to-be 40-year-old was expected to take part against the Premier League side, but Ibrahimovic will not be available for coach Stefano Pioli.
Milan have Olivier Giroud back, after the French forward spent the international break in fiduciary isolation due to a positive coronavirus test.
Ibrahimovic’s Champions League experience will be missed against Liverpool, as the 39-year-old has scored 48 times in 120 appearances in the competition, after stints with PSG, Inter, Juventus, Ajax, Barcelona and Manchester United.
During his last stint with the Rossoneri, Zlatan played 16 games in the competition and scored nine times with the Milan jersey.
