The 38-year-old tested positive for the coronavirus last month but has since recovered ahead of this weekend's derby at the San Siro.

Former inter star Christian Vieri claims Ibrahimovic's mental strength will make him ready for the big occasion.

“His experience has no equal and encompasses everything,” Vieri told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Technique, vision of the game, scoring goals, assisting and making his team play better.

“He raises everyone’s level of quality.”

“He will have broken the treadmill every day. One who says that coronavirus had a bad idea to challenge him, is mentally stronger than all.

“He’ll play the derby with a cigarette in his mouth, trust me.”
