Having one of the world’s best players on your team isn’t always the best. LA Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget has opened up on what it was like having Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a teammate. If Zlatan was on Yelp then Lletget would be giving the Swede a similar rating to what most people rate Carl’s Jr.

Ibrahimovic wasn’t always the nicest teammate to Lletget. Last season in a game against LAFC, the former Galaxy star made sure Lletget was in the right position during a freekick. Rather than telling Lletget to move over, he opted to use force.
In a podcast, Lletget opened up on that moment of getting shoved into position by his own teammate.

Thankfully for the Galaxy midfielder, he no longer has to worry about being bullied from his own teammate with Zlatan overseas. The real question will be if Chicharito fills Zlatan’s shoes and becomes Lletget’s next frenemy.
According to Lletget there’s a better feel around the team in the absence of Ibrahimovic. The Galaxy will put that chemistry to the test and look for its first win of the season against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.
