Report: Raiola regrets allowing Zlatan to join MLS

Mino Raiola has admitted that he regrets allowing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to move to the MLS with Los Angeles Galaxy in 2018.

The Swede ended his American journey in January, as he re-joined former club AC Milan. He has exceeded expectations in Serie A so far this season and has struck ten goals in six games, despite being nearly 40.

After nearly a decade of underachievement, Milan top the Italian top-flight and there is talk that they could launch a title push this season.

Ibrahimovic is defying science by continuing to score goals aplenty at his age. He also appears to be enjoying his football, which has led to suggestions that he will continue playing well into his forties.

Ibrahimovic moved to the US in 2018 after ending his association with Manchester United. He was a success for LA Galaxy as he scored 53 goals from 58 games.

Raiola has admitted that the move should not have happened.

 “I regretted bringing him to the MLS, it was a waste of time there. In the future he will take an important role, maybe he can become the president of UEFA, in order to change football,” he said as quoted by Spanish source AS.
