MLS to honour Galaxy great Donovan ahead of MLS SuperDraft

Major League Soccer will pay tribute to soccer legend Landon Donovan in Philadelphia next week.

The LA Galaxy star, who retired from professional soccer after winning the 2014 MLS Cup, will be the subject of a special feature produced by the league prior to the 2015 MLS SuperDraft on January 15.

Donovan will appear alongside MLS Commissioner Don Garber at a hotel in downtown Philadelphia in an event that will honour him for a brilliant career which saw him win six MLS championships with two clubs.

Donovan, who also starred for the San Jose Earthquakes earlier in his career, ended with a league record 144 goals and 136 assists in what was a glittering career in USA and Canada's top flight.

"Major League Soccer will pay tribute to Landon Donovan, honoring him for his significant contribution to the league," read the league advisory.
