LA Galaxy icon Alan Gordon retires from professional soccer

LOS ANGELES -- An LA Galaxy icon said goodbye to the sport on Sunday. 

Former Galaxy forward Alan Gordon announced his retirement following a 15-year MLS career. Gordon made stops at Portland Timbers, Chivas USA, Toronto FC, San Jose Earthquakes, Colorado Rapids, and Chicago Fire, but enjoyed his most success with the LA Galaxy. 

An MLS Cup winner in 2005 and 2014, Gordon scored 93 goals in competitive matches across 10 seasons for the Galaxy. 

"I consider myself very lucky and blessed to have been a part of the continued growth of Major League Soccer," said Gordon in a statement. "I will always be grateful to have shared the field with the incredibly talented players that I have, as well as the lifelong relationships I have developed off the field. The game has given me far more than I could ever give back. I want to thank my family and friends for their continued support over the years and their willingness to allow me to chase my dream. I am proud of the things I have accomplished alongside my teammates and I am excited to begin the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
