America's all-time leading goal scorer Landon Donovan revealed Thursday that he is once again officially retired from football.
According to Joe Lago of Yahoo Sports, Donovan said the following regarding his playing status: "Yeah, I'm done. I'm done. No more playing for me. ... I have not [gone public]. But that is definitely the case."
The 35-year-old originally retired in 2014, but he surprisingly returned to appear in six matches for the L.A. Galaxy last season before stepping away from the game again.
The six-time MLS Cup winner scored one goal for the Galaxy last season and retires as the league's all-time leader in both goals (145) and assists (136).
He is also the all-time leader for the United States men's national team with 57 goals and 58 assists.
Donovan will remain busy in retirement as an analyst for Fox Sports, as well as the member of an ownership group looking to bring an MLS franchise to San Diego.
