Ibrahimovic to miss Champions League clash

04 November 2014, 20:59

Paris - Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League match against APOEL on Wednesday with the nagging heel injury that has now seen him sidelined for more than 10 weeks this season.

PSG coach Laurent Blanc said the Swede was "not far away, but he's missing something".

"It's an injury that is not muscular, so he has had to work it a lot," Blanc said.

"He's lacking competition and has lost contact with the ball, but physically he's not lost much."

Blanc, with one eye on Sunday's Ligue 1 match against Marseille, added: "If that damn pain went away, he could be very competitive very quickly."

Quizzed on Ibrahimovic's call-up by Sweden for matches on November 15 and 18 against Montenegro and France, Blanc replied: "It doesn't surprise me.

"When you have a chance of getting a guy like that back, you try your arm."
