LA Galaxy striker Ibrahimovic: Why I turned down Man City

Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has explained turning down Manchester City.

LA Galaxy forward Ibrahimovic had the opportunity to move to the Etihad Stadium in 2010 after reportedly falling out with Pep Guardiola at Barcelona.

“I had the chance to go to Manchester City when I was at Barcelona but after that moment in Barcelona, I needed to find happiness," he told the Mirror.

"Going back to Italy, I was happy in Italy and I knew I would be happy if I go back and I didn't know if I would be happy if I go to City because it's a different challenge.

“It would have been a new club, which Milan also was.

"But I knew the city because I had three years at Inter, I knew the country, so I took a little bit of a safe card."
