Zlatan Ibrahimovic shoots hat-trick in the LA derby - and insults opposing coach
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the man of the evening in the Los Angeles derby between Galaxy and LAFC - and not just for sporting reasons. In the 3: 2 (1: 1) victory he had scored all three goals for Galaxy, but after the match was mainly a confrontation with a goalkeeper coach of LAFC in focus.
The two discuss on the field together, goalkeeper coach Zak Abdel hinted with a movement to an elbow strike, which he said during the match at Ibrahimovic said (unfortunately, it was not possible to review SPIEGEL ONLINE reproach).
Ibrahimovic responded angrily to the accusation: up video recordings was heard as the Swedish former international said to his counterpart "Go home, you little bitch, Go home", looked at him grimly and waved. What Abdel answered is not understandable.
Already in advance, Ibrahimovic had made headlines. He made fun of LAFC star Carlos Vela, who plays MLS at the age of 29, the best footballer age. The league is weaker than most European leagues. Ibrahimovic claimed that he was the best player in the MLS and described himself as "Ferrari under Fiat".
Ibrahimovic and Vela compete for the Golden Boot for MLS's top scorer. Vela, who scored both goals for LAFC in the derby, tops the list with 21 goals. Ibrahimovic has scored 16 goals so far. Whether he now threatens a disciplinary action of the MLS because of the dispute remained unclear at first.
