Ex-Man Utd striker Ibrahimovic: I joined LA Galaxy to play

Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he's joined LA Galaxy to play.

Ibrahimovic made only seven appearances for United this term - and it was this lack of involvement that pushed the former PSG star to quitting Old Trafford.

“I decided to sign with Galaxy because I think it's the right place for me," he said.

“I have a lot to give, I can help them a lot, and they are the best team in the US. There were no doubts. I have a lot of expectations, I put pressure on myself, I demand a lot in my game.

“I'm just looking forward to playing, I need to play.

“I'm like a little child who you give candy to for the first time and he's looking for the candy all the time.

“That is what I need. I need to play and I want to play.

“I'm hungry to play because it's gone too long now, I haven't felt involved in the game and I need to feel involved. Because this is what I've been doing all my life."
