Landon Donovan's Transfer to Club Leon Has Once Again Left Everyone Confounded

  Landon Donovan's Transfer to Club Leon Has Once Again Left Everyone Confounded “No creo en los muros,” he wrote. “I don’t believe in walls.” It’s a timely political statement as well as a deeply personal one, and it may just offer a glimpse into the thought process of a legend who’s flouting convention again. Landon Donovan enjoyed the most decorated career in American soccer history (men’s version), and along the way he stayed when he was told to leave and then left when he was told to stay. He went on sabbatical.

Donovan is the third player signed by Leon for the Clausura tournament along with Argentinian Emanuel Cecchini and Jamaican Giles Barnes.

Donovan played in three World Cups: South Korea and Japan 2002, Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010. He also played in six Gold Cups and won four titles. He scored 57 goals playing for the U.S. team and 145 in the MLS.

Donovan has done broadcast work since retiring and was rumored to be considering a run for U.S. Soccer Federation president. Donovan announced in November that he would not seek the position.
