Landon Donovan Comes out of Retirement to Join Club Leon

Landon Donovan Comes out of Retirement to Join Club Leon

Interesting, to say the least. It is unclear when Donovan will begin training with the club, and given that he hasn't played competitive soccer in well over a year, there's no telling when he'll make his debut.

Donovan is the fourth USMNT international to play for Club León joining William Yarborough, Eric Wynalda, and Marcelo Balboa. He scored 57 goals playing for the U.S. team and 145 in the MLS. Once again, Donovan has left everyone grasping.

Contract details have not been revealed.

He will definitely have work to do if he's trying to crack the team. And I regret that. Sinha and Cuauhtemoc Blanco played roles for Liga MX sides at more advanced ages than Donovan. He probably isn't quite match fit at the moment but likely won't take long to get there. Los Esmeraldas just signed another MLS player, landing Gilles Barnes, who played last season with Vancouver and Orlando City.

Pero con el Arsenal consciente de los intereses rivales del United , no hay ánimo en los Emirates para reducir el precio. "Sería un golpe, especialmente para los hinchas del United si se concreta la operación".

Signing Jeremy Menez is a boon to the former France national and could signal a new commitment by Club America to bring big-name players from Europe. He's even done commercials for a Mexican lottery. As for when we might see him play, it's hard to tell.

He said: "I loved the city". David Butler II, USA TODAY Sports Donovan returned the affection, greeting fans after the game. I don't believe in walls, I want to go to Mexico, dress myself in green and win trophies with Leon. Or, is he just going to serve in a mentor-type role?

The former Alabama linebacker was a first-team All-American for the Crimson Tide in 2016 and won the Butkus Award. Getting back to full fitness will be a chore, never mind reaching a level of play to impact a league with better overall quality than MLS. He also looked like a player who had accumulated a fair bit of rust during his nearly two-year retirement.
