Barcelona Confirm Ankle Injury To Zlatan Ibrahimovic
According to a report on the club’s official website, Ibrahimovic has picked up a sprained ankle and may not participate in Saturday’s game.
Marca report that the former Inter hitman missed training today as a result of the injury, which he acquired while competing for the ball with Verdiblancos defender Henrique.
It is not a serious problem, but it is likely that coach Pep Guardiola will err on the side of caution and rest Ibrahimovic in order for him to be available for next week’s Champions League tie with Dynamo Kyiv.
Meanwhile, Malaga will play their midweek fixture against Barcelona’s city rivals Espanyol later on Wednesday evening.
