LA Galaxy attacker Donovan expects to remain in soccer in retirement

LA Galaxy attacker Landon Donovan expects to remain in soccer after retirement.

Donovan will play his final game for the USA in the coming days.

"I can't imagine a scenario where I won't want to be involved to some extent, maybe not at the national team level, with developing younger kids and helping them," Donovan said. "Not just for what happens on the soccer field, but how you deal with the other stuff off the field, which, candidly, would have helped throughout my career. I look forward to that, I think it's going to be a lot of fun.

"It might not get as much publicity, the next phase of my life, but I very much want to be helpful in the world, I want to be of service," he added. "Without sounding cheesy, I want to make the world a better place than when I came…I don't know exactly what form that will take, but that's my goal."
