Former Roughrider Re-Signs with Los Angeles Galaxy
The LA Galaxy announced Tuesday that they have re-signed Alan Gordon (Yavapai 2000, 2001), the veteran forward who won his second career MLS Cup with the club last year after a mid-season trade from San Jose.
Per club and MLS policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Gordon, 33, scored five goals and added an assist in 14 regular season appearances, and then appeared in all five of the Galaxy’s postseason games. He played all 30 minutes of extra time during the Galaxy’s 2-1 win over the New England Revolution in the MLS Cup final, earning his second league title after previously winning one with LA in 2005.

The 11-year MLS veteran has also spent time with Chivas USA (2010) and Toronto FC (2011).
As a member of the Galaxy from 2004-2010, Gordon scored 16 goals and added 12 assists in over 80 appearances. 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).
