Zlatan Ibrahimovic grabbed his crotch in response to heckling LAFC fan

Zlatan gestures towards an LAFC fan

'El Trafico' was pretty darn exciting this morning.

MLS' battle between Los Angeles FC and LA Galaxy is always an entertaining one, but the latest instalment many just be the best yet.

LAFC ran out 5-3 winners, the first time they have beaten Galaxy, with Carlos Vela scoring a brace to take his tally for the season to 36 goals and his team to the Western Conference Finals.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic also added another to his account, taking him to 31 goals for the campaign in just 31 games.

Both the Swede and Vela have been in battle this season to be the division's number one striker and Vela has comfortably finished on top.

However, it would be unlike Zlatan to not make the headlines all about him after being shown up by an opposing striker in a key game.

As he was leaving the LAFC pitch, the Swedish striker made a rather crude gesture to the opposing fans who were heckling him by grabbing his crotch.


Classic Zlatan.

It's very likely that his career in America is now over, with Zlatan saying after the game: "It's not about money. I have another 2 months [on my contract]. We see what happens...[If I stay], then MLS is good, because the whole world will watch it. If I don't stay, nobody will remember what MLS is."

He's just not a fan of MLS, is he? Throughout his time in the States, Zlatan has constantly criticised the setup and size of America's premiere football league.

As such, the Swede has been heavily linked with a return to Italian football, where he previously thrived wit Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.

Can he still do a job in Europe? Quite possibly, but the 38-year-old surely doesn't have much left to offer, especially in a fast-paced environment like Serie A.
