Perhaps the greatest player in US soccer history, Landon Donovan, is set to come out of retirement and return to the Los Angeles Galaxy for the remainder of the MLS season.
With Donovan’s famed number 10 jersey being occupied by Giovani dos Santos, Donovan will return in the unfamiliar number 26 kit.
Donovan retired from the game after helping the Galaxy win the 2014 MLS Cup at the age of 32.
In a hilarious piece of foreshadowing, the Galaxy posted a video just yesterday featuring Steven Gerrard jokingly saying that Donovan shouldn’t come out of retirement because the former USMNT star would take his job.
Will Donovan help spark another MLS Cup run for the Galaxy, or will his age and time off finally have caught up to him?
