Simply for the moment living up to the attention, the game should go down as the greatest in the history of MLS. "This is the first of many games to come". And for the first hour, it looked like the new kid in town, LAFC, had taken over.

"The fans were demanding Zlatan, and I gave them Zlatan".

Less than a week after announcing his transfer to LA Galaxy FC, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made himself an instant hit in California.

"I was just waiting to come on because when you're losing 3-0, the adrenaline is pumping even more because you want to be able to do something for your team in a hard situation". I just wanted to come in.

Ibrahimovic, widely considered one of the most famous players in the world, joined the Galaxy from English powerhouse Manchester United last week. I did the first sprint and I was starting to breathe immediately. I said I will not let you down. "I don't run with the ball".

Because the US operates a salary cap, Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the galaxy will earn only $ 1.5 million per year, which is 18 times less than his earnings in England. "They are the future and you want to be a good example to them in a insane way and that's by scoring insane goals", Ibrahimovic said after the game.
