After spending two years with the LA Galaxy, Zlatan Ibrahimovic declared himself the best player in Major League Soccer history. After 18 months with Manchester United in the Premier League, which was cut short due to a serious knee injury, the Swedish striker moved to the United States in 2018.
After two seasons with MLS side LA Galaxy, where he scored 53 goals in 58 appearances, the Swede returned to the Italian soccer giant late in December.
When asked by the ab & Juls Show how he felt about his time in Major League Soccer, he said: “I’m in a good mood right now. I owe MLS a debt of gratitude for allowing me to experience life. “
But there was one problem: I was still very much alive. As a result, I was far superior to everyone else in the competition. That was my demonstration. I’m the best player in MLS history, and it’s not due to pride or ego; I’m the best and I know it. “
I enjoyed myself while I was there. It was a blast. And I liked how they worked and how they approached marketing. And I believe that [juggling in Major League Soccer] was the most effective way for me to recover from my injury. My health was at an all-time high. And I’m proud to have played for Major League Soccer because people used to tell me that the stadiums were always empty when I played there.
When I was playing, there were no vacant stadiums. I can’t complain because there were even overbookings, and I’m glad I was there. “
Ibrahimovic, who joined AC Milan from the Galaxy in 2020, is currently in Serie A but has not ruled out a return to the Galaxy.
But he hasn’t ruled out a return to Major League Soccer in the future, even hinting that he might follow in the footsteps of Inter owner Luciano Spalletti. Miami, David Beckham, and establishing your own franchise are all things that come to mind when thinking about starting your own business.
“You never know,” he said, “maybe one day I’ll return.” “So to show them how to remind them what true football is,” says the coach. For two years, it was like that. They got to see real football for the first time, and I don’t think they’ll ever see anything like it again. Perhaps I’ll return and open my own bar. “You just don’t know.”
Between 2018 and 2019, Ibrahimovic scored 53 goals in 58 games for the Galaxy before returning to Serie A with Milan. Despite the fact that the Galaxy went home empty-handed after failing to sign a new player,
