Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named rookie for the MLS after scoring 22 goals for the Los Angeles Galaxy since March this year.
The 37-year-old striker added 10 assists to 22 goals in 27 games, including his 500th official career goal, being one of three active players to overtake the mark (in addition to Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine Lionel Messi).
The former Ajax forward, FC Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester United won 36.36% of MLS reporters, players and coaches.
In second place was former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney with the Englishman who left the red devils at age 33 to sign for DC United, picking up 32.25% of the likes.
Despite the good performances of 'Ibra', the Galaxy were left out of the U.S. champions' play-offs after finishing seventh in the Western Conference.
