The club and the player have consented to commonly go separate ways.
LA Galaxy announced Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not return for the 2020 MLS season. “We would like to thank Zlatan for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. “Since his arrival in 2018, Zlatan has positively influenced the sport of soccer in Los Angeles. We are grateful for his work ethic and passion. We thank Zlatan for his professionalism and immeasurable impact on the Los Angeles community and the soccer community in North America as a whole.”
“It’s not about cash, I was kidding,” Ibrahimovic said. “I have an additional two months and we see what occurs. You need to get credit back for when you’re playing. At the point when you accomplish many things, you need to get credit for what you’re doing. I think we are doing the most extreme we can and win or lose today we did the greatest. Like I stated, the season has been similar to this … we score two, we concede four.
We score three, we concede four. We score one, we concede three. It’s difficult to play that way. I put forth a valiant effort, I figure everyone gave a valiant effort. Furthermore, what occurs next year. In the event that I remain or not, I think for MLS it’s great on the grounds that the entire world will watch us. In the event that I don’t remain, no one will remember what MLS is.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic counted 52 goals and 17 assists in 53 starts for the LA Galaxy. The five-time MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy will commence its 25th season in Major League Soccer (MLS) in March 2020. The Galaxy’s season opener, alongside the club’s whole 2020 MLS Regular Season, will be declared on a later date.
