Zlatan Ibrahimovic mocks his manager's own son after scoring 500th career goal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the 500th goal of his illustrious career, but Jonathan Osorio netted the victor to lift Toronto FC to a wild 4-3 win over the LA Galaxy Saturday night at BMO Field.

The Swedish star whipped in the goal with a roundhouse kick on a volley off of a looping pass from Jonathan dos Santos in the 43rd minute to reach the milestone. He has now scored 19 goals in 21 career MLS games. Unfortunately, it was not enough to earn Galaxy a point as Toronto scored two late goals to pick up the 5-3 win.

His tally of club goals now stands at 438 including strikes for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, PSG, AC Milan and Manchester United.

He has also scored 62 goals for Sweden.

Ibrahimovic joined Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the only active players with 500 career goals for club and country.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim".

Ibrahimovic's goal was greeted by a standing ovation from the opposition fans but the Swede dismissed the gesture as a run of the mill response to his customary brilliance.

The 36-year-old Swede joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players with 500 goals for club and worldwide play, cutting the Galaxy's lead to 3-1 in the 43rd minute. "It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax", he said.
