Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a stunning start to new MLS (Major League Soccer) season after he scored in the first game.

Swedish football legend Ibrahimovic found the back of the net to help his LA Galaxy to an opening day win in the new MLS season.

The former AC Milan, Juventus and Barcelona star scored the winning goal to give LA Galaxy a 2-1 win over Chicago Fire at home.

Chris Sarpong had given the visitors a stunning lead before Daniel Steres equalised for LA Galaxy thus paving the way for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score the winner with ten minutes left on the clock.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic became an LA Galaxy player in March 2018 after joining from Manchester United.

He had earlier signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2016 shortly after Jose Mourinho took over as the Manchester United manager.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was an influential figure for a Manchester United side that won three trophies in his first and only full season at the club.

Manchester United and Ibrahimovic won the Community Shield, the Carabao Cup as well as the Europa League in that season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was linked with a return to Europe in January but the Swede decided to stay at LA Galaxy.
