It’s safe to say Galaxy fans saw this coming, but it’s still nice to hear the official announcement.

After taking the league by storm, LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named to the MLS Best XI for the 2018 season.

Signing with the Galaxy earlier this year, Ibrahimović stormed into the league with two late goals during his LA Galaxy debut on March 31. For 2018, he tallied 22 goals and 10 assists, becoming only the third player in league history to record a 20-goal, 10-assist season. His 32 combined goals and assists this season tie for the sixth highest total in MLS annals.
