Zlatan karate-kicks home his 500th career goal

"He thinks he is the philosopher of football", Ibrahimovic is quoted as saying of the former Roma midfielder by MLS after the game.

The maverick Swede has scored all sorts of goals.

LA Galary forward and Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimović just scored his 500th career goal in very fitting fashion. Ibrahimovic swept his right leg up, poking the ball past Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono with a shot that bounced off the right post for the score, cutting the Galaxy's deficit to 3-1. Since then, the former Swedish worldwide has scored 17 goals for the MLS side in 22 appearances.

The outspoken Swedish striker whipped in the goal with a roundhouse kick on the volley from Jonathan dos Santos' pass in the 43rd minute to reach the milestone. It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax.

Ibrahimovic, 36, left Manchester United to join the Galaxy at the start of the 2018 season and now has 17 goals in 22 appearances for LA.


"It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it".

Unfortunately for Zlatan and the Galaxy, a Jonathan Osorio goal in the 75th minute and another from Jay Chapman gave Toronto FC the win meaning the Galaxy slip further away from the playoffs.

His tally of club goals now stands at 438 including strikes for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, PSG, AC Milan and Manchester United.

"It is an incredible achievement", said Galaxy coach Dominic Kinnear of Ibrahimovic's goal.
