Zlatan Ibrahimovic is keeping fit by training with Swedish outfit Hammarby.

The veteran superstar is currently on the books with AC Milan. However, as the coronavirus wreaks havoc it’s not yet known what the future holds for him.

Like across the rest of Europe, Swedish domestic football is on hold.

However, social-distancing restrictions in Ibrahimovic’s homeland are currently more relaxed and training sessions for top-flight sides can continue.

The 38-year-old recently bought a 25-per-cent stake in the Stockholm-based club.

He was coy when quizzed about his future earlier this month. "Let's see," he told Svenska Dagbladet.

"I don't even know what I want. Something new happens every day. Who could have predicted this with corona?

“We just have to try to live and enjoy life.”

Ibrahimovic caused controversy by investing in Hammarby last year. He has a long-running association with their rivals, Malmo.

"Hammarby is a fantastic club with passionate supporters and has great respect in both Stockholm and Sweden," Ibrahimovic said.

"I have always liked the club and the fans. I am impressed with what the club has done in recent years, both on and off the pitch. Being able to join and develop Hammarby forward feels both fun and exciting."

Hammarby chairman Richard von Yxkull was delighted to get Ibrahimovic involved.

"To get a person like Zlatan into the club, with the passion and winning mentality he stands for, feels right.

"It is too early to say anything in detail about how Zlatan can contribute to Hammarby.

“But there is clearly very great potential in the collaboration."
