Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss AC Milan’s Champions League game against Liverpool on Wednesday through injury.
The former Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Juventus striker is being rested as a precaution after feeling pain in his Achilles tendon during training on Tuesday morning.
Ibrahimovic, 39, returned from four months out with a knee injury on Sunday, scoring in Milan’s 2-0 victory against Lazio to make him Serie A’s oldest foreign goalscorer.
“Ibrahimovic never gets old and he has great passion, a fire burning inside him,” Milan coach Stefano Pioli said after that match.
“He competes to win, he always trains to the maximum and he does so with pleasure. When you are like that you do not feel the years go by.”
