The LA Galaxy captain doesn't think the 'Loons' put in an outstanding performance. "It became easy for them because I didn't really have chances," he said.
In the midweek game between the LA Galaxy and Minnesota United, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and company were unable to find a way through the hosts at Allianz Field, which puts them behind LAFC by three points, to sit in second place in the Western Conference.
The LA Galaxy captain had scored in five consecutive games so far in the 2019 season, but in his sixth appearance the Swede was powerless, and the match ended in a goalless draw.

For Ibrahimovic, the fact that the 'Loons' stopped the Galaxy's attack, preventing him from adding goals to the seven he already has, wasn't because they did a great job on the field.
"I don't think they did anything special; I think it became easy for them because I didn't really have chances, so if you don't have chances it's easy for the defenders because they don't have to react, so I think it was easy work for them," were Zlatan's words after the game.

The 'Loons' notched their first shut-out since 9 March as the Galaxy failed to produce their best form, and when asked if this point was a win of sorts Ibra answered: "If the opponent was better, yes. I didn’t see the opponent as being good; I see it more as we lost two points."
