Landon Donovan reportedly interested in replacing Gulati as U.S. Soccer president

U.S. men's national team legend Landon Donovan is considering throwing his name into the hat to become the next U.S. Soccer president, according to Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated.

Wahl's report notes that the 35-year-old is "seriously considering" running for the position with Sunil Gulati under fire after the men's national team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Donovan has 57 goals for the national team, sharing the record with Clint Dempsey. Candidates must formally submit their names by Dec. 10. 

As Soccer America points out, voting is split between a youth council, adult council and more.
