Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s LA Galaxy career starts with a place among the substitutes as his side host local rivals Los Angeles FC.

Ibrahimovic’s move to Major League Soccer was confirmed just over a week ago, having left Manchester United on a free transfer.

The former Sweden international had struggled for regular football at United this season due to fitness problems following a serious knee injury, but is fit enough to feature on Galaxy’s bench.

The 36-year-old enjoyed his first training session with the club on Friday and was then presented to the media in a well-attended news conference.

Despite his injury and fitness issues, Ibrahimovic said in his presentation that he feels like “Benjamin Button – I was born old and now I feel young”.

However, he will have to be content with a place in reserve as he gets his stint in the United States under way, with Ola Kamara preferred in attack to the former Inter, AC Milan, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain superstar.
