Former Everton star Landon Donovan has come out of retirement for a second time and will play for Club Leon in Mexico.
After initially retiring in 2014, Donovan came out of retirement in 2016 to assist LA Galaxy, who were short of attacking options at the time before hanging up his boots for a second time in November 2016.
Donovan becomes the third player signed by Leon for the Clausura tournament along with Argentinean Emanuel Cecchiniand Jamaican Giles Barnes.
The 35-year-old is the all-time leading scorer for the US men’s national team and LA Galaxy. He has played in three World Cups which came in 2002, 2006 and 2010.
“I loved the city, León is an historic and winning team,” Donovan wrote in Spanish, before appearing to aim a shot at Donald Trump’s vow to build a barrier on the US-Mexico border. “I don’t believe in walls, I want to go to Mexico, dress in green and win tournaments in Leon. See you soon.”
