With 35 goals in 42 league appearances and one of the league’s great highlight reel goals under his belt, there can be only room for one soccer superstar in Los Angeles.
Live from the Microsoft Center at LA Live Wednesday evening, Zlatan Ibrahimovic won the Best MLS Player Award for 2019 as voted by the fans. Zlatan wound up topping Wayne Rooney, Josef Martinez and Aaron Long to take home the honor. Believe it or not, the big Swede is the 9th LA Galaxy player to win the award.
(Ok admittedly Carlos Vela was kind of screwed out of a nomination, but the fact remains Zlatan is king in LA)
The Galaxy battle Matias Almedya and the San Jose Earthquakes this Friday in a Cali Clasico rematch before the big one next week when the original football club from Los Angeles takes on LAFC in the one and only El Trafico.
