LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed that he would the US President if he had come to the country ten years earlier.
The Swedish striker made the move to the MLS in March after his previous club Manchester United had released him from his contract.
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.
Ibrahimovic has been impressive since his arrival at LA Galaxy scoring 12 goals in his first 15 games as well as providing two assists.
He also grabbed a goal and an assist as his Galaxy side defeated Philadelphia Union by 3-1.

The 36-year-old trails the league’s leading scorer, Atlanta’s Josef Martinez (22), by 10 goals, but has played seven fewer matches.
