'Winner' Landon Donovan's arrival a boost to Club Leon - Fernandez
From ESPN - January 14, 2018

Landon Donovan is "a winner" who will make a big contribution to Club Leon, sporting director Rodrigo Fernandez has said.

The signing of U.S. legend Donovan, announced on Friday, was the surprise of the Liga MX January transfer window.

The 35-year-old came out of retirement to sign for Leon and is due to be officially presented at Estadio Leon at 9 p.m. local time on Monday. His No. 20 shirt is on sale at the club shop.

"It was not easy [to bring him to Club Leon], but the fact he was here in Leon helped us a lot," Fernandez said on Saturday.

"He got to know the city, the stadium, some of the facilities this great club has, and that helped persuade him.

"With the mentality he has he is coming to contribute. He's a winner, and he's coming to produce."
