Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be ruled out of the Euro 2020 due to a knee injury, head coach of Sweden Janne Andersson confirmed on Saturday.

The AC Milan hitman injured his knee in the Serie A fixture against Juventus last week, the initial diagnosis suggested the 39-year-old needed a three-week recovery time, but according to the latest statement from the Rossoneri, the Swede will take a conservative treatment lasting for six weeks despite surgery unnecessary.

"I spoke to Zlatan Ibrahimovic today, who unfortunately told me his injury will prevent his participation in the European Championship this summer," said Andersson.

"Of course it is sad, especially for Zlatan, but for us too. I hope that he is back on the pitch again as soon as possible." He added.

The Euro 2020 is slated to kick off on June 11, Sweden will take on Spain in the opening match.
