LA Galaxy star Sebastian Lletget has slammed former teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic, stating that it is so difficult to play with him that the team environment is now better with him gone from the club.
The Swede spend two seasons in Major League Soccer with LA Galaxy to score 53 goals from just 58 matches for the American side. He was awarded the newcomer of the year in his first season at the club and was also in the MLS Best XI and All-Star line-ups on two occasions.
However, it seems as though Lletget didn’t particularly enjoy his time as Ibrahimovic’s teammate, claiming that no-one wanted to sit with him at the dinner table.
"There's definitely a better feel around the place, for sure," Lletget said, as per AS. "As far as chemistry, that's only going to build with time."

"No one sits with him [Ibrahimovic], ever."
He then went on to reveal how difficult it was to play with Zlatan. Lletget said, "You couldn't be free. It was super frustrating. You feel like you want to literally take your boots off and just walk off the field. It's tough to play against him and tougher to play with him."
Lletget was then asked about the push he received from Ibrahimovic during their match against LAFC, to which he responded by concluding, "That to me is complete insanity to do that to one of your team-mates — complete insanity. It's one of those moments I think he shows his true colours."
