Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone surgery in the Netherlands to strengthen his abdominal wall, the recently crowned Serie A champions said on Friday.

The 25-year-old Sweden international, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign with a groin injury, had been putting off the operation until Inter wrapped up the title.

Ibrahimovic, who played a significant part in Inter's Scudetto success with 15 league goals, will also miss the club's two-legged Italian Cup final against Roma.

He is also likely to be ruled out of Sweden's 2008 European championship qualifying matches in June against Denmark and Iceland.
