Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed his departure from the Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday, but gave no clue over his future plans or possible retirement.
The 38-year-old striker’s departure from the Galaxy had been widely expected following the club’s elimination from the Major League Soccer playoffs last month.
Ibrahimovic, who joined the Galaxy in the opening months of the 2018 campaign, announced the end of his Californian sojourn in a characteristically enigmatic post on Twitter.
“I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again,” Ibrahimovic wrote. “To the Galaxy fans - you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome.
“The story continues...Now go back to watch baseball.”
The Galaxy said in a brief statement the club had parted company with Ibrahimovic by mutual agreement.
“We would like to thank Zlatan for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein.
Ibrahimovic has been strongly linked with a return to Italian club AC Milan, where he played for two seasons between 2010 and 2012, scoring 42 goals in 61 league appearances.
