"Los Angeles, welcome to Zlatan."
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is officially a member of the LA Galaxy. The team announced the veteran striker's arrival with a video that Zlatan will surely declare Oscar-worthy.
The video features the former Manchester United man walking with a lion—an allusion to Zlatan's previous assertion that "lions don't compare themselves to humans," referring to himself.
In pure Zlatan fashion, the video declines to welcome Ibrahimovic to Los Angeles, as is customary in these sorts of announcements. Instead, Ibrahimovic declares, "Los Angeles, welcome to Zlatan."
"Different place, but same Zlatan," Ibrahimovic said in a separate video.
In a second post by the club, Zlatan gave a longer interview discussing the move and his desire to succeed with Los Angeles. "I have a lot to give, I can help them a lot and it's the best team in the U.S," he said speaking of his new team. "I put a lot of pressure on myself, I demand a lot in my game, I think I have a lot to give and to bring so with that experience I have hopefully it goes like I want and we can all share the happiness by winning."
Let's not delay the inevitable: Give Zlatan his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
