Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reaches Los Angeles, Could Make Galaxy Debut In Derby

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic was given a hero's welcome as he touched down in Los Angeles

Ibrahimovic - who could make his debut against Los Angeles FC on Saturday - now has a new appreciation for the game after going through so much "boring training" during his rehabilitation.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Swedish professional striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was seen hunting in Macedonia ahead of Manchester United star's move to LA Galaxy.

"I just want to go out there and smell the grass, every time I go out there I want to feel the ball, kick it pass it and run". After three months I conquered England and they said I was flying.

I thought that the loss of Justin Meram and Ola Kamara would hit Columbus badly, and it may yet prove pivotal as the season develops, but for now at least, Federico Higuain has had a terrific start to the season, and Gyasi Zardes has come in as a player reborn.

In a town built on blockbuster movies, Zlatan Ibrahimovic wrote an ending beyond even the wildest dreams of Hollywood, announcing his arrival at Los Angeles Galaxy with a stunning volley and a late victor against Los Angeles FC.

Noticing Tyler Miller off his line, Ibrahimovic notched his first MLS goal with a dipping volley from 40 yards that sparked incredible celebrations both in the stands and on the pitch.

Ibrahimovic reiterated that his only goal of signing with Galaxy is to "win, win, win", and said if he fails to do so he will be the first to be frustrated.

Saturday's sold-out fixture pits the Galaxy, one of the league's original 10 teams, against expansion club LAFC, whose ownership group includes sports figures and celebrities such as Will Ferrell and Magic Johnson.

"I think [LAFC] is going to work Galaxy's defense a lot".

Mourinho is "sad" about Ibrahimovic's exit at Manchester United. I have more goals than players have games, so I think I know what I'm doing. Ibrahimovic wouldn't say if he would make his debut in the first edition of the new LA rivalry already being dubbed "El Trafico", instead deferring to manager Sigi Schmid. I know what I'm able to do, what I will do. "I didn't feel ready, so I took a step back."He doesn't want a spot in the Galaxy lineup just because he is a big name".

"I'm just looking forward, as we all get to know each other, to have great success on the field and return the MLS Cup to LA". "I was born old, and I will die young, this is for sure".
