Landon Donovan has decided to come out of retirement and sign a contract to play for the LA Galaxy for the remainder of the year. Donovan initially retired at the end of the 2014 season with the LA Galaxy, the team he had played for since 2005. He remains the all-time leading scorer for U.S. Soccer (57 goals) and Major League Soccer (144 goals) and is also the MLS all-time leader in assists (136). Since retiring, Donovan has remained close to the sport in a broadcasters role and most recently joined Swansea City in an ownership role. The Major League Soccer MVP Award was also renamed in his honor to the Landon Donovan MVP Award.
