When asked about the gesture, Ibrahimovic said: "How many fans came? 30,000? They said something.

"I enjoy it. It gave me adrenaline. This is nothing."

The former Sweden international also expressed frustration regardingCarlos Vela's second goal for LAFC, which came on a tap-in off a pass from Brian Rodriguez, with replays seeming to show Vela was offside in the build-up.

"The referee didn't know that? What was he doing upstairs, drinking coffee with Magic Johnson?" Ibrahimovic said, referring to the the NBA legend and LAFC co-owner who participated in the club's pregame ceremonies.

Ibrahimovic had a goal and an assist in the game but it wasn't enough as LAFC advanced to the conference finals after winning the first postseason edition of the city rivalry.
