Speaking to Mundo Deportivo, the former Manchester United, Inter Milan and Barcelona star explained the main reason why he decided to extend his stay in the MLS.

"I feel I have a lot to give to the team, the MLS and the fans," he said.

"For the next season, I think I was not going to be a regular, but I was not so good for me. I want to feel challenged in this regard.

"The first season I was, especially after my injury. I had not played more than ten minutes for a year. I have shown, However, that I am here, that I am alive and this was important to me."

Ibrahimović recently praised Paul Pogba's revitalisation at Manchester United after the sacking of José Mourinho.

However, the LA Galaxy ace offered his thoughts on why the relationship between the United midfielder and the Special One fell apart this season.

"Paul didn't feel confidence from the coach, and the coach didn't feel confidence for Paul," he told ESPN.

"It's difficult to perform as a player if you don't have confidence from the coach and you don't have that energy, that motivation, and José felt the same thing about Paul.

"These things happen, and that is part of the game also; I mean, not everybody can go among each other and do well together.

"I feel like you come to a moment where it is too blocked and one goes or the other one goes. At this moment, the coach left, and Paul is more free now."

Did Ibrahimović make the right decision to stay at LA Galaxy?
