Zlatan Ibrahimović Hits 500th Career Goal With An Outrageous Karate-Style Strike

Zlatan Ibrahimović has done it once again. The former Manchester United and Barcelona striker has reached a new milestone in his illustrious career, but more importantly, he’s done it in typical Zlatan style.

During LA Galaxy’s match against Toronto, the self-proclaimed God showed why he hasn’t lost his deadly striking prowess when he scored his 500th goal for club and country.

Check it out below (then rewatch it a couple of times to try and figure out how he did it):

Of course, Ibrahimović’s strike puts him in the same history books as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to reach that goalscoring feat.

Even at 36 years old, the Swedish forward is producing quality moments in front of the net (or with his back to it).

LA Galaxy were 3-0 down in the first half before Ibrahimović pulled off that spectacular strike — and it seemed to be a rallying call for his team.

Sigi Schmid’s side scored twice in the second half to level it up to 3-3, but Toronto were able to bounce back and make it 5-3 before the full-time whistle was blown.

Ibrahimović moved to LA Galaxy in 2018 after a two-year stint with Manchester United, winning both the UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup in his debut season with the Red Devils.

It doesn’t look like the big Swede is getting ready to hang up his boots any time soon, especially when he’s made 22 appearances for LA Galaxy and scored 17 times in his first season in the MLS.

In fact, he’s even beenlinked with a move to the Egyptian side Pyramids. Whether or not that happens — it seems unlikely at the moment — Ibrahimović won’t have any problems replicating his form in that league either.

Remember: form is temporary, but class is permanent.

And Ibrahimović is all about being classy.

Dare to Zlatan, anyone?
