Donovan holding hope ex-Leeds, Columbus winger Rogers joins LA Galaxy
"It was fun to play with him," said Donovan, who has played I the USA team with Rogers.
"He's been out awhile, so it's going to take him a while to get back into it, and he would admit that, but hopefully he does well.
"My personal hope is that we'll sign him and that they can find out a way to work a trade with Chicago (who currently hold his MLS rights).
"I think beyond the immediate soccer part, I think there's much bigger positive consequences that can come from that, and we're all hopeful that he'll get fit and play well and that Bruce [Arena] wants to sign him."
