Zlatan left United at the start of the 2018 season to join Galaxy.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic said he is "happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as his 500th victim" after the LA Galaxy superstar scored a landmark goal.

The 36-year-old Ibrahimovic as always had a flair for the dramatic and he did just that Saturday in becoming the third active footballer to reach the milestone, joining Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Toronto had jumped out to a 3-0 first-half lead at BMO Field before Ibrahimovic's goal fueled a furious Galaxy rally that saw a tie game by the 58th minute.

The veteran has also bagged 62 goals for his country.

"It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it".

"I mean, from my personal objective it's fantastic", continued Ibrahimovic. "The guy is a great goal scorer and it is a memorable one for him for many reasons". Of course, it's huge. However, it wasn't to be for the Californian side, who shipped two more goals in the final 15 minutes to lose the game 5-3.

The striker now plies his trade in the U.S. after playing for an array of elite clubs in Europe such as Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG and Manchester United, chalking up goals that brought him a championship title in nearly every league he's played in.

Ibrahimovic was PSG's top goalscorer with 156 goals before Edinson Cavani broke his record in January.
