AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic,has tested positive for coronavirus.
The announcement came just hours before Milan are due to take on Norwegian side FK Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday.
The club said that they have informed the “relevant authorities” and Ibrahimovic will now enter a period of quarantine at home.
Milan added that no other member of the squad has tested positive in the latest round of testing, although defender Leo Duarte did return a positive result on Wednesday and has already begun isolating.
Ibrahimovic has scored three goals in Milan’s first two games of the season, including both in their 2-0 win over Bologna in their first Serie A match of the season.
The 38-year-old former Sweden international signed a new one-year deal at the San Siro this summer following his successful return to the club from the LA Galaxy in January.
