Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists he could still do a job in the Premier League.
Ibrahimovic, 37, is still showcasing his finishing ability with LA Galaxy, and scored twice in the derby draw with LAFC this weekend.
But he believes he could still perform in England – and has delivered a ‘come and get me’ message to old club Manchester United.
The Swedish superstar – who once famously said: “I’m a lion, not a human” – took his season’s tally to 20 and then gave United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer something to think about as he tries to sort out his misfiring squad.
Ibrahimovic said: “The Lion still roars, yes. I could still play easily in the Premier League. If United need me, I’m here. But right now Galaxy have me and that’s what I’m concentrating on.
“I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it. I have 33 trophies that I brought with me and hopefully I can win something here and then we will see where I finish.”
Ibrahimovic gained cult status at United with 29 goals in 53 appearances during a 20-month stay. The 37-year-old signed on with a great headed goal to win the Community Shield on his United debut and went on to play a pivotal role in the club’s League Cup and Europa League victories.
Then the man who has won titles in four different countries moved to California to take the States by storm.
Ibrahimovic went on: “I keep an eye on how United are doing.
“I look out for them. I saw the last game against Crystal Palace and if they had scored their penalty (Marcus Rashford missed from the spot) it would have been a different game.”
Ibra said he is not shocked that former United team-mate Wayne Rooney is packing his bags in the New Year to join Derby after a brief spell with DC United.
“No I’m not surprised that he’s going back” he said. “He came, he tried, and he did his best. He’s shown patience but that patience has finished.
“Wazza said something about all the travelling and he’s right, it’s not easy.
“He’s going back as a player/manager. He’s looking for something else. Me, I focus on just one thing and for the moment I’m a player.”
Ibrahimovic said he still keeps in regular touch with United’s wantaway star Paul Pogba, who is unsettled at Old Trafford. “We speak. I give him a lot of advice – but nothing I’m sharing with you!” he said.
Lionel Messi Reveals The Six Players His Son Thiago Talks About
Lionel Messi has revealed his son Thiago regularly talks about six footballers, one of which is his long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
The seven-year old is a big football fan and in addition to his six-time Ballon d’Or winner father, Messi’s eldest is a big fan of Ronaldo, as well as Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann, Arturo Vidal, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
In an in-depth interview with Mundo Deportivo, Messi said: “He talks a lot about Luis [Suarez], with whom we have the best relationship, about [Antoine] Griezmann and Arturo [Vidal] since the first day because of his hair and all that.
“Also about people from outside, [Kylian] Mbappe, Cristiano [Ronaldo], Neymar.
“Yeah, Thiago knows them all, he asks questions and likes it a lot.”
Thiago turns out for the Barcelona youth team and showed he might just have what it takes to be the next Messi when he scored a brilliant goal.
He, along with middle child Mateo, are taking an active interest in the game and regularly turn up to watch him training according to Messi.
The Barcelona captain added: “The two older ones are showing more dedication to the ball Thiago and Mateo are the ones that understand the most.
“They come to the pitch and training sessions and are usually close to me.”

Last year, Messi revealed that Thiago is actually his biggest critic and regularly tries to give his old man pointers on where to improve.
“It’s always difficult to digest defeats and bad performances, but [my son] Thiago now forces me to comment on what happened and explain,”
“He follows everything, asks questions, and gives me notes when things are not going so well. Yes, yes, I already received a couple of criticisms!”
