Los Angeles Galaxy forward Landon Donovan will consider retiring at the end of the MLS season, the American star told Goal.com this week.
"Why wouldn't I (consider retirement)?" he said. "At the end of this season, I'm going to re-evaluate everything and see how I feel. If I want to keep playing, I'll keep playing. If I don't want to keep playing, I won't keep playing. If I want to go elsewhere, I'll try to make that happen."
Donovan, 30, has played for the Galaxy since 2005, after joining the club from Bayer Leverkusen. His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2013 season.
"If I want to stay here, I'll try to make that happen," he said. "I don't know the answer to that right now."
Donovan has made 189 appearances for his MLS club and has 143 international caps with the United States.
"When I was younger, I was motivated by different things," Donovan told Goal.com. "I wanted to score all the time. I wanted to be famous, I wanted to be popular. I wanted to make money. I wanted to do all of those things but at the end of it all, those things don't do a lot for you."
