After establishing himself as one of the world's best soccer players in Europe, Zlatan signed with the Galaxy in March to help the squad bounce back from a disappointing 2017 season and an already rocky start to 2018. Zlatan was also looking to make a comeback of his own as he played a limited role at Manchester United mainly due to his severe injury to a ligament in his right knee.
In the 2018 campaign, Zlatan garnered 22 goals and 10 assists in 27 matches for the Galaxy. He scored seven game-winning goals, the league’s second best tally, and set an MLS record for averaging 1.40 goals and assists per full match. He revitalized his career in Los Angeles and made a what looked like another wasted season for the Galaxy to one with legitimate playoff hopes.
