American football legend Landon Donovan has left Liga MX side Club Leon following an unsuccessful comeback spell

The 36-year-old made his comeback from retirement for the second time in January when he had announced that he had signed for Club Leon.

However, since his arrival, Donavan has only made five appearances in the Liga MX with just a total of 98 minutes of game time.

While the former LA Galaxy star did have the rest of the year on his contract, Club Leon have now announced his exit.

The Mexican winger Hirving Lozano has had a great season so far with the Dutch Eredivisie team and praised his former league.

“Landon Donovan and Club Leon have agreed to part ways and to not validate the signed contract for next season,” read a club statement, via Goal.

“During the time that Landon spent with our team, he has been exemplary in all aspects. The club loses a legendary professional in the world of sports that leaves an indelible mark in our club.”

Donavan made his first comeback in 2016, where he helped former club Galaxy reach the Western Conference finals in the MLS and now appears set to confirm his retirement for the third time.
