Zlatan Wins MLS Newcomer of the Year
The LA Galaxy striker had a marvelous debut season with the team, scoring 22 goals and adding 10 assists in just 27 games for the club.
Ibrahimovic’s season in Los Angeles also featured him netting his 500th career goal – one that has been nominated for MLS Goal of the Season.
Though Ibrahimovic had an excellent debut campaign, it was not enough to get the Galaxy into the postseason after a final day defeat to the Houston Dynamo.
The Swede becomes the first LA Galaxy player to win Newcomer of the Year, having barely edged out former England international Wayne Rooney for the award.
Ibrahimovic took a 36.36 percent average of the vote, ahead of the D.C. United striker’s 32.25%.
