CARSON – When Landon Donovan joined Galaxy in 2005, he was returning to Southern California in search of stability in his life and playing career.

The Redlands native found his footing with the Galaxy, leading the way to the MLS Cup in his first year and eventually establishing himself as one of the best players not only in Major League Soccer, but in Major League Soccer’s history. In too.

On Sunday, 39-year-old Donovan, who now coaches San Diego Loyal SC in the USL, was on his way back home from home at Dignity Health Sports Park for the unveiling of his statue.

The Donovan statue is the second Galaxy built and placed in Legends Plaza. David Beckham was the first in 2019.

“Throughout my career, I realized that the most important ability I had was my availability,” Donovan told the crowd. “I was always on the field. That was a lesson I carried with me all the time. I took care of myself, be smart, be careful and that’s why it happens.

“You don’t get this (statue) to be good for two years, three years or five years, it’s meant to be for a long time.”

Donovan certainly made his mark on the Galaxy. He played with the club from 2005 to 2014 and then came out of retirement briefly in 2016.
