Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has given two reasons why he won't be pursuing the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede is a free-agent after leaving LA Galaxy upon the expiry of his contract. And Klopp has ruled out a potential deal as Ibrahimovic closes in on a return to Europe. "If he had not played for Manchester United before, then we might have considered him," he told Sportbladet. "No, but I'm not even sure he wanted to play here.
We're a pretty intense team haha… "With that said, I couldn't have had more respect for Zlatan. "I love his whole career, love his efforts, love his confidence. While it may not always be right, it is entertaining anyway. "He's a fantastic character and I really hope he doesn't stop playing football. The world will miss him too much." Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will not sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer Zlatan Ibrahimovic left Man Utd in 2018 to join LA Galaxy Even if Ibrahimovic didn't have ties to Manchester United, it would be unlikely for Klopp to move for the 38-year-old given the wages he would demand and the importance of Roberto Firmino. The veteran couldn't help but poke fun at Galaxy fans as he penned his farewell message. The story continues... Now go back to watch baseball," he posted on social media. Ibrahimovic struck 31 times in 31 appearances in the MLS as Galaxy eventually lost 5-3 to local rivals Los Angeles FC in the MLS Cup play-offs. Zlatan Ibrahimovic could return to Europe after leaving LA Galaxy I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans - you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues...Now go back to watch baseball pic.twitter.com/kkL6B6dJBr — Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) November 13, 2019
