Zlatan Ibrahimovic: LA Galaxy hail arrival of ‘one of most winningest players of all time’

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was described by LA Galaxy as “one of the winningest players of all time” after completing a move to the Major League Soccer club.

Ibrahimovic’s signing was announced in an advert in the LA Times, with Galaxy later officially confirming the deal.

The full-page advert in Friday’s edition of the newspaper had a message from the Swedish striker, 36, saying: “Dear Los Angeles, you’re welcome.”

LA Galaxy boss Sigi Schmid said: “He’ll have a very positive impact.”

He added: “Adding one of the finest goal scorers in this sport’s history to our roster will tremendously help our club in the hunt for a sixth MLS Cup,

“As one of the winningest players of all time, we are confident that Zlatan can be one of the most dangerous strikers in our league.”

Ibrahimovic arrives on a free transfer following the mutual termination of his contract with Manchester United on Thursday.

His contract at United was due to expire in the summer after 20 months at the club.

In an interview with the LA Times on Thursday, Ibrahimovic was asked if Los Angeles was big enough to handle his personality, to which he replied: “If it’s not, I’ll make it bigger.”
