Landon Donovan of the LA Galaxy has announced that he will retire after the current MLS season. Donovan is the top scorer in both national team and MLS history and also earned All-Star Game MVP honors on Wednesday night.
Donovan, only 32, is widely renowned as the best U.S. produced soccer player of all-time. In 14 MLS seasons, he scored 138 regular season goals, and he also racked up 57 goals in 156 appearances for the U.S National team. He was disappointed in not being named to this year’s team for the World Cup but ended up doing commentary on ESPN during the tournament.
Donovan’s next appearance will be Friday night for the Galaxy against San Jose at StubHub Center.
