The 31-year old striker has linked up with Donovan after signing with the Galaxy on Monday and the USA international feels the arrival of the former Tottenham, Liverpool and Celtic forward will prove a big hit in the North American competition.
"I've always respected him from afar, mainly because he's just a guy who's honest, and he works hard," said Donovan.
"Obviously, his goalscoring record speaks for itself. But he's the type of player that I think will succeed in this league. I think he's a humble player, he works hard, and he's going to put himself in really good spots to score goals."
