All eyes on Ibrahimovic as Galaxy prepare for derby

All eyes on Ibrahimovic as Galaxy prepare for derby

Ibrahimovic has met his new team-mates and had his first training session in Galaxy colours, putting him in the frame for a debut in the LA derby on Saturday.

Last year's last place finish in points (tied with D.C. United with 34) amongst the entire league was a new low for soccer in LA since the days of Chivas USA.

"It [the move] was supposed to happen before Manchester United". My head was here.

Ibrahimovic was released from his Manchester United contract to join LA Galaxy in the MLS to play out his prolific career. "They're going to find open spaces with Diego Rossi and Vela", Lopez said, "They're going to really test the Galaxy's defense but I still think LA Galaxy is going to come at them with Kamara and maybe Zlatan so it's going to be a pretty good clash". They did well to draw 0-0 at Vancouver last time, and won against a poor Portland on the opening day, but given the potential distractions of the Zlatan circus, I quietly fancy that LAFC could get something here, whether or not Ibrahimovic makes his debut for the Galaxy.

The striker, who will earn an estimated $3 million for two seasons in MLS, added that he had already proved sceptics wrong during his spell with United in the Premier League, where he scored 28 goals in 46 appearances before tearing knee ligaments last April. "I didn't feel ready, so I took a step back."He doesn't want a spot in the Galaxy lineup just because he is a big name". Okay. Things go sometimes like it's not supposed to go, but the destiny said that I will come here.

Mourinho is "sad" about Ibrahimovic's exit at Manchester United. I know what I'm able to do, what I will do.

"Let me first enjoy it here", Ibrahimovic said. "I feel excited. The lion is hungry", he said. I came in a wheelchair and after three months I conquered England. Now we'll bring so many trophies that I can bring in to this club. "I'm not arrogant, I'm confident".

"I think there's a chance he can play a part in the [LAFC] game", Schmid told reporters, as per Eurosport. Don't worry about my age.

LAFC sprang to life again after the Ibrahimovic goal, with Urena beating his defender in the Galaxy penalty area and then smashed a shot off the post.

Saturday's game will be the first time fans can watch the expansion club in Southern California, though the Galaxy will still be the home team at the StubHub Center.

"I'm just looking forward, as we all get to know each other, to have great success on the field and return the MLS Cup to LA".
