[Atlanta United vs LA Galaxy. Whoever comes in for Ibrahimovic, Guillermo Barros Schelotto says his side cannot afford to lose as they look to recover their form following a run of four defeats in seven matches] Our challenge will be with other names on the roster to get something in Atlanta. We need the points. Win or at least to tie - we need to learn that when you can’t win, you have to tie. It’s not win or lose. You can’t win, you have to tie, no loss

[LA Galaxy coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto says that Zlatan Ibrahimovic needs more protection from VAR following a series of incidents] To be honest I think sometimes, in some plays, I don’t know why some referees do not use the VAR with Ibra because I could see the penalty for Columbus and I could see twice in the D.C. United game. Everything that happens around Ibra is a matter for discussion. Maybe it happens with other teams but those teams or those players don’t attract the same attention. Because he is Ibra, situations are exaggerated a lot and also [for the referee] to claim [a foul] they have to be very clear. For Ibra it was a penalty. But if we have VAR, we need to use it because Ibra went to the floor and felt something and I don’t know why he [the referee] didn’t check it.

[The LA Galaxy’s roster for Tuesday night’s Leagues Cup semifinal against Cruz Azul came out Monday. LA Galaxy coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto doesn’t seem to be down on the tournament in general] It’s a good idea. I think we can learn from each other

Unfortunately, the calendar isn’t working in our favor. We came in playing every three days, this is the fourth game we’re going to play. Honestly, there are players who need rest. Cristian Pavon got here, he played three days later, then he played again three days later. It could hurt him, because he could get injured, but also for the team not having him at 100 percent. You can’t obligate him to play, keeping in mind as well that Sunday we’re playing our derby against LAFC, which is an important game not only with the context of playing the other team in the city but also the points we can get are important for our future

[Schelotto didn’t ask for his team to be the only MLS side to make it through] Obviously … It’s not that we have an obligation, but, yes, we know we’re the only MLS team left in this competitions and we have to try to get to the final. We’ll try to do that (Tuesday), knowing that we have a near-future with a lot of important games in the league ahead of us. This is game we want to take on with all the seriousness it deserves and try to win

[LA Galaxy head coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto says Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to see out his career in Italy] He does not know what he will do now. He is a wonderful player, but I don’t know what his next step will be - perhaps he’ll finish his career in Naples or with Milan. I don’t know where he will go but he deserves and wants to finish his career in Italy

[Ibrahimovic spent two seasons with Milan - winning the Serie A and Supercoppa Italiana - before leaving in 2012 for French giants PSG, where he worked under current Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti] They know each other well. Zlatan evidently has the characteristics that Napoli needs

[Guillermo Barros Schelotto says Higuain a ‘dream’ for LA Galaxy boss, with Khedira & Matuidi also of interest to MLS side] It would be a dream, we are talking about one of the best centre-forwards in the world. But honestly, I find it difficult to bring him here immediately. I saw an interview with Gonzalo where he said he wanted to stay at Juventus and in Europe. Maybe it’s too early for Higuain, but never say never in football. I personally know the whole family, his father Jorge and brother Federico. We have already brought in Ibra’s replacement in Chicharito Hernandez and we are happy with him. In Higuain’s case, it would be a separate matter. It’s a dream for the future, but it won’t be easy

Top players like Khedira and Matuidi could be interesting for us, even if it’s impossible to make predictions. Given the health emergency we are experiencing, we can’t know what will happen in the summer and what kind of transfer market it will be

Apart from Higuain, who in my opinion remains very strong, the ideal partner for Cristiano Ronaldo would be Lautaro Martinez of Inter. [Paulo] Dybala is an extraordinary No10, with excellent technique

[Guillermo Barros Schelotto tells he believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s level of play remains at the peak of world football] Sometimes in training he complains, he gets angry. But we know him. He’s very competitive, very demanding. I think he’s helping the players in training to grow and to be more competitive. I’m surprised the level he has. It’s wonderful. It’s the same level as Messi, Ronaldo. He’s 37, he’s older. But I think his level is very high

[Guillermo Barros Schelotto says Gonzalo Higuain will be returning to his roots at River Plate and not linking up with MLS side the LA Galaxy if a move away from Juventus is to be made] Who wouldn’t want him? I would, but it’s difficult. He could still remain at Juventus, but if he leaves, I think he would choose with his heart. I think he will return to River Plate.

Bentancur does not break down and this is a very important gift. In the end, this was his destiny: to play in a great European team. When I said goodbye I told him, ‘This is your moment’. I see him as a right winger and not as a playmaker, he is different from [Miralem] Pjanic. He has to improve certain aspects and score more goals. But as far as the psychological aspect is concerned, those who grew up in the Bombonera do not feel pressure
