Landon Donovan has come out of retirement for the second time with the U.S. legend announcing he has signed for Club Leon in Mexico’s Liga MX.

At 35 years old, Donovan has been out of the game since November 2016 when he shocked the soccer world to make a comeback for his long-time club, LA Galaxy.

That comeback stint lasted just six regular season games and three playoff appearances, but it is believed Donovan has signed on for Liga MX’s Clasura (the second half of the Mexican season) which runs until May 2018.

The all-time leading goalscorer in USMNT history has kept himself busy since retiring in 2014, working as a pundit for multiple outlets and becoming a minority owner in Premier League club Swansea City, but it appears the pull of being able to play while he still can has never fully gone away.

Below is a look at how Twitter reacted to the news that Donovan had returned, once again.
