Ibrahimovic still out of PSG, Silva back

Center back Thiago Silva, however, is back from a thigh injury that has kept him out of action since mid-August

Paris St Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has yet to fully recover from a heel injury and has been ruled out of the French champions' Ligue 1 game against RC Lens on Friday, coach Laurent Blanc said.

"It's going in the right direction but he is not ready to train with the squad and play," Blanc told a news conference on Thursday.

Center back Thiago Silva, however, is back from a thigh injury that has kept him out of action since mid-August, Blanc said.

Ibrahimovic has not played for club or country in almost four weeks since he picked up his heel injury in a 1-1 league draw against Olympique Lyonnais.

Unbeaten PSG are third in the standings with 15 points from nine games, seven adrift of leaders and arch rivals Olympique de Marseille.
