Galaxy sign forward Alan Gordon

January 11, 2016

The Los Angeles Galaxy have re-signed super-sub and free-agent forward Alan Gordon, the club announced today.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Since being acquired from the San Jose Earthquakes in 2014 in exchange for allocation money, Gordon has thrived in a reserve role with the Galaxy, providing vital scoring off the bench by notching 10 MLS goals during the previous two seasons.

Last season, Gordon, 34, made 29 appearances and seven starts during the 2015 MLS season, scoring 10 goals across all competitions. Gordon tallied three game-winning MLS goals, second on the team behind team MVP Robbie Keane, who recorded five.

Gordon also played a crucial part in the 2015-16 CONCACAF Champions League, scoring four goals in group play as LA advanced to the quarterfinals. In all, the veteran forward has made 223 MLS appearances, scoring 49 goals and adding 27 assists during his career. His 26 goals all-time for the Galaxy rank as the ninth-most in club history.

In 2015, Gordon also spent time with the U.S. Men’s National Team, earning a call up to the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup roster where he appeared against Jamaica in the semifinal match of the tournament. He was also named to the roster for two 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying matches, against St. Vincent & The Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago.

The 12-year veteran began his career in Major League Soccer as a member of the Galaxy (2004-2010). During that time, Gordon scored 16 goals and added 12 assists in over 80 appearances during his first six years with the club. He was a part of the squads that captured an MLS Cup (2005), Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (2005) and two Western Conference championships (2005, 2009).
