The season is over for Los Angeles Galaxy. After finally returning to the Major League Soccer play-offs after a couple of poor seasons, the club from California still have a lot of job to do this year – they want to keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the club for at least another year.
Galaxy managed to get past the first round in play-offs, but then they lost to city rivals Los Angeles FC despite Ibrahimovic’s goal and assist in a 5-3 defeat. Many have suggested that this could be Zlatan’s final match in MLS, as his contract will run out at the end of 2019. But now we realise that might not happen at all.
LA Galaxy general manager Dennis te Kloese has spoken about his idea of keeping Zlatan at the club, as the two are set to have discussions next week. Despite being 38 years old, the Swedish striker has done remarkably well in MLS in these two seasons. He racked up 53 goals since the start of 2018 season and also added 14 assists to that tally.
