Zlatan Ibrahimovich hails his move from Manchester United to LA Galaxy with full-page ad in LA Times newspaper

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has paid for a full-page advert in today’s LA Times newspaper to hail his arrival in the US of A. Earlier this week, Manchester United ripped up Zlatan’s contract, allowing him to sign a two-year deal with LA Galaxy. He’s still’s full of swagger, but is the 36-year-old Ibra worth it?




He might well be. With 33 top trophies in his cabinet, Ibrahimovic has aged well. Since his 30th birthday, Zlatan has scored – get his – 251 goals. Didier Drogba scored 141. Teddy Sheringham scored 124. Before turning 30, he scored 232. Ibrahimovic has scored ten or more league goals in every season from 2006/07 to 2016/17.

All hail, Zlatan, then.

Will David stay at LA Galaxy? Is the Galaxy big enough for David Beckham? What does the Galaxy over LA smell like and can it be branded and then decanted into an atomiser for him and cologne for her?

Says Day-vid:

I’m a Galaxy player now.”

Only another three more years to go and that contract will be at its end. Who in Britain cannot wait for Day-vid to lift the big trophy with the LA Gs and leave on a high?

Tom Cruise Kisses Victoria Beckham At LA Galaxy Match

7597049WHILE David Beckham was risking his neat hair and shaving contract by confronting fans at the LA Lakers / Galaxy/ Astros/ Hobos/ Milanos, Victoria Beckham was doing what she does best: being overdressed at the football and neglecting to answer the popular refrain from the terraces.
