LA Galaxy striker Ibrahimovic: Rooney great for DC United and MLS

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney has been great for DC United and MLS.

The Swede believes Rooney is the sort of figure the MLS should be looking to snare from Europe.

"It's good to see Rooney here. We meed more of the big European players coming to Major League Soccer, to spread out the quality, spread out the experience here," he told the Mirror.

“Rooney was the right guy to bring. He brings a lot of quality, a lot of experience and he make the game look easy so I'm happy he is here.

“The football is okay - it is not Europe but it is progressing. It is developing and I am more than happy to help it."
