Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s two-year stint in Major League Soccer will come to an end next month after the Swedish star announced his upcoming departure from the LA Galaxy in typically eccentric fashion.
Ibrahimovic’s contract with the Los Angeles club expires at the end of the year and with the 38-year-old considering a final stint in a major European league before calling time on his career, he thanked Galaxy fans for their support and told them that now they can “go back to watch baseball.”
His spell in the white jersey saw him score 53 goals from just 58 appearances across two seasons but even with those impressive numbers, the former Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United frontman was unable to prevent his side from crashing out of the MLS Playoffs to arch rivals Los Angeles FC.
“I came, I saw, I conquered,” he wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans – you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues…Now go back to watch baseball.”
