LA Galaxy continue preparations for their home meeting witth Houston Dynamo in week eight of the MLS and captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic spoke about the start he's having to the season in Wednesday's press conference.

In typical, self-effacing style, Ibrahimovic referred to himself as the MVP of the American league but when questioned about the importance of winning the league's top goal scorer award, he bluntly replied that it's not important to win it. Zlatan offered an explanation, pointing out that he's already the Most Valuable Player in the MLS and that's why he doesn't need a trophy to confirm it.
