Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s tenure with the LA Galaxy has come to an end as the club announced it mutually parted ways with the player on Wednesday.
In his trademark bombastic manner, the Swedish star tweeted a message thanking the club, saying: “You wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan.”
“I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans — you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues…Now go back to [watching] baseball.”
The club released a statement shortly after, thanking the 37-year-old “for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer.”
“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,” LA Galaxy president Chris Klein.
Ibrahimovic tallied 52 goals and 17 assists in 53 starts for the LA Galaxy.
