Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out of AC Milan’s trip to Liverpool in the Champions League due to an Achilles injury, which Jurgen Klopp will consider a boost to his side.

But now Ibrahimovic has been ruled out due to tightness in his Achilles, according to The Athletic‘s James Horncastle, who reports that he will remain in Milan.

He is the biggest absence from a strong Milan squad heading to Merseyside, with Klopp praising him as “one of the best players ever” in his pre-match press conference.

“If he’s not playing the probably Olivier Giroud is playing, or Rebic is playing, or whatever; all slightly different profile, but all really good.

The Swedish striker, now 39, was expected to challenge Olivier Giroud and Ante Rebic for a starting place up front for Wednesday’s clash at Anfield.

“He squeezes every drop out of his body and wants to stay in the game as long as possible – and rightly so, he is absolutely capable of playing in each league in the world still.” Milan are unlikely to be missing many other players for the tie, though midfielder Sandro Tonali watched Tuesday’s training session from the touchline having suffered with illness.

Ibrahimovic made his first appearance since May as he came off the bench to score in Milan’s 2-0 victory over Lazio on Sunday, having recovered from a long-term knee injury.
