Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said there should be no comparisons between his first goal for LA Galaxy and the bicycle kick Cristiano Ronaldo scored for Real Madrid in the Champions League win over Juventus on Tuesday.
“I think it’s a big difference, because he scored in the Champions League, I scored in MLS,” Ibrahimovic said. “It’s a big difference.
“A goal is a goal. If you can help your team to score a goal, it’s important, however you score. But when you score beautiful, of course, it’s more … nice, let’s say, that it’s beautiful. It feels really good.”
Later, when asked about Ronaldo’s goal, Ibrahimovic said: “I think he is a goal machine. he scored a beautiful goal today but he should try it from 40 metres and see if it goes in.”
Ibrahimovic’s introduction to Los Angeles could not have gone better as he scored two goals in the Galaxy’s 4-3 come-from-behind win over LAFC.
He said the first goal, scored from 35 yards, felt right as soon as it left his boot.
