Landon Donovan has come out of retirement and signed with León. Donovan signed a one-year contract with La Fiera, which will bring him out of retirement for the second time.
The former U.S. national team star originally retired in 2014; he returned to the field in September 2016 to play nine games for the LA Galaxy before retiring once again.
Donovan, 35, wrote in Spanish on Twitter that “I don’t believe in walls, I want to go to Mexico, wear green, and win trophies with León.”
It’s unclear when Donovan will actually take the field for León, but in another Twitter exchange with fellow American Omar González, Donovan wrote “See you on February 24th”, the date when León and González’s Pachuca are scheduled to play.
