Landon Donovan announces his LA Galaxy return two years after he had retired from football as the former Everton striker is willing to help his hometown club in their bid for a sixth championship.
A little injury crisis has struck the former Galaxy player in recent weeks, and he has taken the decision after discussions with Coach Bruce Arena, to make himself available for selection.
He discussed the decision in a lengthy Facebook post: “I am very happy to announce that I have decided to rejoin my hometown team, the LA Galaxy for the remainder of the MLS season. While this decision may come as a shock to many, I want to explain how and why it was made.
“Two weeks ago, I was working as an analyst on the LA Galaxy vs. Vancouver Whitecaps match and during that game, the Galaxy suffered injuries to three players: Jelle Van Damme, Steven Gerrard and GyasiZardes. Over the next few days, Nigel De Jong was transferred to Galatasaray and news broke that Gyasi would be out for the rest of the season.
