All eyes were on Ibrahimovic who drummed up plenty of interest for Galaxy vs. LAFC. He extravagantly said he was a Ferrari surrounded by Fiats.
"MLS is not the level of Europe, to be honest. Before, I played with players either on my level or close to it which makes the game connect easier," he said before turning in a virtuoso performance.
"Here, I am like a Ferrari among Fiats. And it can happen that the Ferrari can become the Fiat, or the Fiat can become the Ferrari. I had the same issue with the national [Swedish] team, though not as much."
But he backed up his words after scoring a perfect hat-trick.
Major. League. Zlatan.

"When you play against a rival like that, in a full stadium, I get pumped. I get adrenaline," the Swede said after Galaxy's victory. "This is considered to be the biggest game in the league and I show up in the biggest games.
"I am in play-off mode every day."
The ex-Juventus and Barcelona man then took to social media in typical Zlatan fashion.
Never change, Zlatan.
