Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc said on Tuesday that he believed Swedish goal machine Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play again before the end of the season.
"The objective is for him to play again before the end of the season. It's a realistic target. The signs are good, but we can't just do anything with him for fear of a recurrence," said Blanc at a press conference prior to PSG's Ligue 1 meeting with Evian at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday.
Ibrahimovic injured his right thigh in the first leg of PSG's Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea at the start of this month and then returned to Sweden for a week for personal reasons before coming back to the French capital on Monday.
The Swede, who has scored a club record 40 goals in all competitions this season, missed last Saturday's 2-1 win against Lyon in the League Cup final as PSG secured the first of a likely trophy double.
A win against Evian on Wednesday will leave the defending champions 10 points clear of second-placed Monaco with only four games left and will mean they can clinch another Ligue 1 title with a win at Sochaux on Sunday.
