Zlatan Ibrahimović isn't a stranger to goodbyes. This time he bids Los Angeles one.

Ibrahimović and Major League soccer team LA Galaxy agree to part ways after two seasons. He teased the news on Twtter, with a tweet featuring him gazing over the city with his arms outstretched. 

Interestingly, Ibrahimović chose to feature the Banc of California Stadium, home to LAFC, and not Dignity Health Sports Park, which is where the Galaxy play.

“You are welcome,” Ibrahimovic tells Galaxy fans in typical fashion.  

The 38-year old thanked the Galaxy together with its fans and tells Los Angeles fans to “go back to watch baseball.”

The team confirmed the news in a statement, and thanked Ibrahimović for his “work ethic and passion.” The team’s full statement read:

“We would like to thank Zlatan for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. “Since his arrival in 2018, Zlatan has positively influenced the sport of soccer in Los Angeles. We are grateful for his work ethic and passion. We thank Zlatan for his professionalism and immeasurable impact on the Los Angeles community and the soccer community in North America as a whole.”

Scoring goals all over the world

Ibrahimović was a star wherever he went. He has been scoring goals and lifting whichever team he plays for in his 20-year journeyman career. In his two seasons with the LA Galaxy, he scored 52 goals in 53 starts.

It is still unknown to this moment where he will play next but rumors state he may return to Serie A with AC Milan. MLS commissioner Don Garber claimed last week the Italian giants were recruiting him.

Wherever Ibrahimovic lands next season, it will surely benefit from his scoring prowess.
