Zlatan Gives The Most Zlatan Interview After Dream Debut
Zlatan Ibrahimovic had the dream LA Galaxy debut and had the perfect post-match interview to go with it.
With his new team 3-1 down to an Carlos-Vela inspired Los Angeles, the charismatic Swede entered the fray as a substitute in the 71st minute.
Chris Pontius struck a minute later to bring the scoreline to 3-2 and then Zlatan did his thing.
He wasn't done there though, as the 36-year old headed home a dramatic last-minute winner from an Ashley Cole cross.
And after scoring on his MLS debut, Zlatan gave a brilliant post-match interview to Fox Sports, producing the stellar line: "I heard the fans chanting, "we want Zlatan" and I gave them Zlatan".
Zlatan Ibrahimović: ''I saw the goalkeeper went out and just put it over him. When I come to a new team I always score in the first game. I had to score. I heard 'We want Zlatan' and I gave them Zlatan.'' #eltráfico #LAGalaxy #LAvLAFC pic.twitter.com/2aYxBYfI49

Ignore the hype, and all the Lion talk but what Zlatan just did as a 36 year old rebounding from a savage injury to stroll onto the field and score two emphatic signature goals is inarguably a remarkable moment of human drama :clap:
