The Battle for Los Angeles

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Los Angeles Galaxy's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, of Sweden, celebrates his goal during the second half of an MLS soccer match against the Los Angeles FC Saturday, March 31, 2018, in Carson, Calif.

Ibrahimovic said he was supposed to come to the Galaxy after he left Paris St. Germain in 2016 but instead moved to Manchester United.

"Things go like they are not supposed to go, but the destiny said I will come here". "Let's see. Because they're all talking about whether I should go or if I should not go". It was the first game for Los Angeles bragging rights between the Galaxy, the most successful team in MLS history (which has struggled the last couple years) and an expansion LAFC team that burst out of the gates with two away wins in its first two games. I've said it before.

LAFC coach Bob Bradley however is adamant that Ibrahimovic's arrival is a plus for MLS, and his team's nascent rivalry with Galaxy. I think it's the MLS and USA, as a football country that is going to get more than what Zlatan is going to get from it. I've already brought my family. "They were pushing me and I was giving back".

Ibrahimovic signed with Galaxy for two years and will earn $1.5 million a season, 96 percent less than what he earned at Manchester United.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will make his first appearance for LA Galaxy on Saturday.

Serial Subject Adnan Syed Deserving Of New Trial, Says Appeals Court
Chapman said she was in the library next to their high school when she saw Syed at the time Lee was said to have been murdered. Syed's attorneys then filed a separate conditional appeal, asking the court to look at the alibi issue.

He's been hurt, has played in only seven games this season - and none since late December - and he's not exactly a spry young man.

Everything else Ibraminovic had to say was pure Ibra, walking the fine line between confidence and arrogance. When I got my injury it was a new situation from top to bottom and I felt my body, I was laying in bed and couldn't move.

The wage cut comes after it was reported that because he is not one of Galaxy's "designated players", the club are restricted to a wage limit for the player. I know what I'm able to do, what I will do. Declaring that he has come to America to win trophies, Ibrahimovic said, "The lion is hungry".

Ibrahimovic joked that he was born old and hoped to die young and recalled that when he arrived in England he was also told he was arriving in a wheelchair.

The Swedish striker left Manchester United to join the MLS side in what many believe will be the final stop in an illustrious career which has spanned nearly two decades.

"But fantastic for him in this period, I think it is a fantastic way for him not to go from being a player to being a former player".
