LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given President Donald Trump something to think about when he said he would be President of the United States of America if he had arrived 10 years earlier.
The former Swedish international made the transatlantic switch to the MLS in March – thinks if he had made the move earlier, he would be in the Oval Office instead of Donald Trump.
When asked how he had changed American soccer culture, he replied: “I don’t know if I changed it, I just keep doing my job. They’re lucky I didn’t come 10 years ago because I would be the President today.”
Since his arrival from the Premier League, Ibrahimovic has been one of the star strikers of the MLS – scoring 12 goals in his opening 15 games, and producing two assists.

New York Red Bulls’ Bradley Wright-Phillips and Columbus’ Gyasi Zardes also have superior tallies with 13 goals. They have played four and seven more games than the Swede respectively.
