After Missing Out On Tebow, LA Galaxy Turn To Landon Donovan

Feel free to check your calendars, today in NOT April 1st.

On the same day failed quarterback Tim Tebow signed with the New York Mets and a major presidential candidate admitted he knew nothing about foreign policy, United States soccer legend Landon Donovan will come out of retirement.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the all-time goal leader for the U.S. Men’s National Team is set to join the L.A. Galaxy after being away from soccer since his 2014 retirement. However, it’s conceivable that the 34-year-old can make an immediate impact considering his age and talent.

The Galaxy are currently riddled with injuries to stars Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard, and Gyasi Zardes and find themselves slipping in the Western Conference playoff race.

Only weeks ago, the Galaxy parted ways with world-renowned midfielder Nigel de Jong, a move that reportedly helped facilitate Donovan’s return.

Though he is arguably the greatest USMNT player of all time, it’s unlikely Jurgen Klinsmann will call him up. The two have a history.

The LA Galaxy had no reported contact with Tim Tebow, despite the headline.
