The Swedish striker joined LA Galaxy in 2018 on a free transfer after parting ways with Manchester United, where he spent two years.

Adapting to the American top flight was no problem for the big Swede, who registered 53 goals and 15 assists in 58 appearances for the Los Angeles outfit.

Ibrahimovic has always been an outspoken figure but San Jose Earthquakes defender Florian Jungwirth revealed a time the striker went crazy on his own teammates during a match.

"I think it was in 2018 when we played at Stanford against Zlatan first time - and he was like really insulting all his team-mates," Jungwirth said in a Q&A on his Twitter page.

"For 90 minutes - he was yelling at everyone. It was just funny.

"Everyone was so scared of him and I was just laughing because everyone was like a little kid. They were like, 'Daddy, can I get something from you?'."
