Serie A giants, AC Milan has angered the Swedish national team coach by convincing
Zlatan Ibrahimovic to snub an international call-up, a report claims.
There were some eyebrows made when Sweden boss Janne Anderson decided to
select Ibrahimovic in his squad for their upcoming internationals over the break,
given that the center-forward has missed the last few games for Milan having
sustained an injury in the win over Lazio.
According to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic
is feeling better but he is not yet able to take to the field and therefore will not be
available to Pioli for Sunday’s match against Atalanta.
The 39-year-old has taken the decision – in conjunction with the advice of the club
doctors – to not respond to the call-up from Sweden. The paper adds though that it
was decided together with doctors from the Swedish national team, but the coach
Andersson seems to have not taken the decision well.
