‘I Gave Them Zlatan’: Ibrahimovic Lives Up to Larger-Than-Life Reputation in Irrepressible Debut

The full-page ad in Friday’s Los Angeles Times said simply, “Dear Los Angeles, You’re Welcome.”

In retrospect, it seems modest.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic refers to himself as a lion, has his own line of signature underwear and last week, he tweeted a picture of himself dressed in a white robe and arm wrestling the devil. He’s confident, to say the least. And despite his age (36) and a serious knee injury suffered in April, Ibrahimovic was certain good things were in store when he signed with the LA Galaxy last week. He’d won titles and beguiled both fans and opponents with spectacular goals at every stop in an iconic career. Soon, L.A. would be showing its gratitude.

“I know what I am able to do, and I know what I will do. I come here to win. I feel excited. The lion is hungry,” the Swede said. “I’m not arrogant. I’m confident. The people who don’t understand say I’m arrogant.”

No spotlight is too bright.
