LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimović to miss 2018 MLS All-Star Game

LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimović will miss the 2018 MLS All-Star game against Juventus at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. on Wednesday, Aug, 1. 

Due to three matches in a week and the travel involved, Ibrahimović will remain in Los Angeles. Per MLS policy, Ibrahimović will miss the Galaxy’s match that immediately follows the All-Star Game, which is the Aug. 4 contest at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park against the Colorado Rapids.

“I am disappointed to miss the 2018 All-Star game against Juventus, one of my former clubs,” said Ibrahimović. “I want to thank the fans for voting me to the team. My main focus is to score goals and help the LA Galaxy to the playoffs.”
