LA Galaxy's Zlatan Ibrahimovic Thinks He's 'Bigger Than All Of MLS'
Zlatan Ibrahimovic thinks he's bigger than Major League Soccer.
"I think I'm bigger than all of MLS," Ibrahimovic said with a hint of a smile when asked about the leagues MVP award.
Outrageous. Typical, Zlatan. But still outrageous.
The towering-Swedish striker has been tearing it up in the States, though, bagging an impressive 20 goals including some absolute worldies from just 24 league matches.
His vision has also been on point, creating nine goals.
Despite his heroics in front of goal, LA Galaxy remain off the pace, two points behind Real Salt Lake for the final playoff spot.
On a personal note, however, he could be scooping up individual honours in the shape of the MVP MLS award for his brilliant season.
Meanwhile, with the season drawing to a close, Ibrahimovic has been linked with a sensational return to Europe.

He added: "It's not easy to return after the injury he had, so I wish him all the best on his 37th birthday. [Gonzalo] Higuain can be as devastating as Ibra, he has less physicality but he brings us a lot of quality.
"In terms of character it's a lot more stressful to train with Ibra, Zlatan raises the tension. Pipita, on the other hand, is always willing to make his teammates smile."
