Ibrahimovic returns to Sweden for treatment

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has traveled to Sweden for further treatment on a hamstring strain.

Ibrahimovic picked up the injury in PSG's 3-1 Champions League quarterfinal first leg win over Chelsea and consequently missed the second leg of the tie on Tuesday.

His absence proved costly as Chelsea fought back to win 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, leveling the tie at 3-3 and progressing on the away goals rule.

Former Barcelona, Milan and Inter man Ibrahimovic is expected to be out for another three weeks, meaning that he will miss PSG's Coupe de la Ligue final with Lyon on April 19.

In a brief statement on their website, the defending Ligue 1 champions confirmed that the 32-year-old has returned to his homeland to continue his recovery.

The statement read: "In consultation with Paris Saint-Germain, Zlatan Ibrahimovic traveled to Sweden on Wednesday to continue treatment on his hamstring strain."

Ibrahimovic has enjoyed a magnificent season for PSG this term, scoring 40 goals in all competitions.

Laurent Blanc's men will win the Ligue 1 title for a second straight season if they win at Lyon on Sunday and Monaco loses at Rennes.
