Earlier today, Milan manager Stefano Pioli announced veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimović has returned following a nine-month injury layoff.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Pioli revealed the attacker would be called-up for tomorrow’s league clash against Torino—his first call-up since undergoing knee surgery in May.

“Zlatan is improving, he requires almost no individual training and joined the group for the final half of today’s session,” said Pioli.

“His role as both a player and motivator is enormous for us and he’s keen to be there alongside his teammates tomorrow.”

Winless in their previous five league affairs, the Rossoneri face-off against Ivan Juric’s men tomorrow evening at San Siro.
