Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the European Championships this summer due to a knee injury, the Sweden coach Janne Andersson has confirmed.

The striker, who only came out of international retirement in March, suffered the problem during Milan’s 3-0 win over Juventus last weekend. Despite it being deemed that the 39-year-old does not require surgery, he will still be unable to make a full recovery in time for the tournament, with Milan saying he requires at least six weeks of treatment.

“Of course, it feels sad, especially for Zlatan but also for us,” Andersson said. “I hope he is back on the field again as soon as possible.”

Ibrahimovic made two appearances for Sweden in March, having quit the national team following their elimination from Euro 2016. He has scored 62 goals in 118 appearances for his country since making his debut in 2001.

Sweden start their campaign against Spain on June 14, before playing Slovakia and Poland in Group E.
