Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a new contract with LA Galaxy that will see him return to LA for the 2019 MLS season
We are very pleased to sign Zlatan to a new contract that will see him return for the 2019 season,” Galaxy general manager Dennis te Kloese said in a media release. “He showed his value last season and we look forward to him representing our club next year. With Zlatan returning, we will continue to improve our team in advance of the season.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 22 goals and had 10 assists in his debut season in the league, earning 2018 MLS Newcomer of the Year and Goal of the Year honors in the process.
He nearly led the Galaxy on a stirring late run to the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs, though the club fell short with a devastating home loss to the Houston Dynamo on Decision Day.
“Let’s just say I’m happy, my family, everybody’s happy, and we have a good time and a good life here,” Ibrahimovic said after the season ended. “[I’d like to resolve this] as soon as possible. I think everything is work in progress. Everybody’s working, so let’s see. It depends how big loan we can get from the bank.”
