One of the greatest football players in history, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made one hell of a debut in his new club. He scored two goals against the LAFC, and one of them was a stunner from some 40 yards.

The Swedish international came on the pitch in the 71st minute as the substitute. 20 minutes later, his second goal of the game was the deciding one, and the reason for the home fans to go wild.

“I heard the crowd saying ‘We want Zlatan, we want Zlatan’,” the 36-year-old told reporters according to Independent. “So I gave them Zlatan. They were pushing me, and I was giving back.”

During the second half, the fans started chanting Ibrahimovic’s name, and as the game progressed the noise was just getting louder and louder. Eventually, coach Sigi Schmid listened to the crowd, and at the end that paid magnificently, to all of them. According to the player, he is very efficient when debuting for a new club.

“My history when I come to a new team, I always score in the first game,” Ibra told later to the journalists. “I didn’t want to let it down this time.”

The fantastic striker came to Los Angeles from Manchester United, where he played for two years, but also, struggling heavily with injuries. Before Red Devils, he stayed at Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, Milan and Paris Saint Germain. He is expected to be one of the biggest assets of this team and a key figure on the court.
