Zlatan Ibrahimovic hates attention, so you can imagine how difficult arriving in Los Angeles to a hero’s welcome was for the humble Swede (patent pending).

The 36-year-old begins his MLS adventure with a possible derby debut against new boys LAFC this weekend, and his pulling into town about 36 hours before kickoff makes that a bit more unlikely.

Then again, this is Zlatan. Almost nothing’s improbable.

The lateness of the hour didn’t stop loads of fans from meeting their hero, and Ibrahimovic signed autographs and posed for photographs before heading to his next stop (probably bed, but who knows?).
