, who now plays for AC Milan after spending two seasons at LA Galaxy, became the latest international star to test positive for COVID-19 when he was forced to miss a Europa
League match against Norway's Bodo/Glimt.
The 38-year-old striker wrote
on Twitter that he tested negative
on Wednesday but positive on Thursday. "No symptoms whatsoever," he said. "Covid had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea."
Ibrahimovic was placed on quarantine in his home, and all
other AC Milan players and staff tested negative.
He had played and scored both goals against Bologna on Monday in Milan's 2-0 win to open the 2020-21 Serie A season. Milan extended its
unbeaten run to 16 games in all competitions with a 3-2 win over Bodo/Glimt on Thursday.
How long Ibrahimovic will be out is unknown. Milan plays at Crotone on Sunday in Serie A and
Portugal's Rio Ave in the final round of the Europa League playoffs on Thursday.
