Ibrahimovic nets 2 in debut, Galaxy win

Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals he nearly joined LA Galaxy two years ago at his unveiling at the MLS club: 'It was supposed to happen before Manchester United... destiny said I was going to come here'

The Swedish worldwide, who recently left the Old Trafford club for Los Angeles Galaxy in the USA, had come to say goodbye to his United mates.

Ibrahimović will be training with the Galaxy for the first time Friday morning before an afternoon press conference introducing him to the team.

Veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to Manchester United to say his goodbyes after a move to LA Galaxy.

"My history when I come to a new team, I always score in the first game", said Ibrahimovic, who has played for European heavyweights Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris St Germain.

'I think it's more what the MLS is going to get is more than what Zlatan will get, because for him will be just a way to enjoy the last couple of years of his football'. "So Los Angeles called and I answered".

The hosts had a good chance to pull one back before half-time when Rolf Feltscher beat his defender to the endline and was all alone only to tamely chip his cross right to LAFC keeper Tyler Miller with two teammates open in front of goal.

On Friday as he was unveiled by the Galaxy in California, Ibrahimovic was coy about playing in Russian Federation.

Ibrahimovic said he has been drawn to Los Angeles for years and had expected to join Galaxy prior to his move to United, but the deal fell through.

The 36-year-old spent most of this campaign on the sidelines due to an injury he sustained towards the back-end of last season.

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

Ibrahimovic played all of 103 minutes in his five-game comeback at Manchester United. "He's a magical soccer player", said Ishizaki, who made his debut Sweden debut alongside Ibrahimovic in 2001. If you ask me is he 90 minutes fit for Saturday, no. "I just want to go out there, smell the grass, appreciate every time I put my shoes on, just to touch the ball, kick it, to pass it, to run". I was born old and I will die young, for sure.

"He said I opened the door for more Portuguese coaches to leave which is something I know is true", Mourinho told reporters.
