CARSON, Calif. -- Landon Donovan is officially done with professional soccer.
The LA Galaxy and U.S. National Team legend confirmed his retirement from the professional game to Yahoo Sports ahead of the USMNT's match against Honduras on Friday.
“Yeah, I’m done,” Donovan said to Yahoo. “I’m done. No more playing for me. ... I have not [gone public]. But that is definitely the case.”
Donovan ended a year-and-a-half long retirement last September to help the Galaxy after a rash of injuries left the team understrength heading into the playoffs. During his stint, the 35-year-old made nine appearances across all competitions for the Galaxy last season.
“I can’t even chase my son [Talon] around my house,” Donovan said. “So, I don’t think so.”
His playing days might be complete, but he has not stepped away from the beautiful game as Donovan recently became involved in the drive to bring Major League Soccer to San Diego.
