Ibra out for long time

Injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out of action for an unspecified amount of time but he will be available to finish the season, Paris St Germain coach Laurent Blanc said on Friday.

"He has a muscular lesion. He is unavailable for the coming weeks for an unspecified amount of time," Blanc told a news conference.

"Unless the injury gets worse, he will be available to finish the season," added the former France coach.

"It's hard to tell because it's still fresh, it will depend on how the injury evolves."

Sweden striker Ibrahimovic was substituted midway through the second half holding his thigh in PSG's 3-1 home win against Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday.

He will definitely be out of Tuesday's return leg at Stamford Bridge but it remains unclear whether he will be fit for a possible semi-final should PSG successfully defend their advantage.
