Former Leeds United, LA Galaxy, and Columbus Crew SC footballer Robbie Rogers announced his retirement from football.

Rogers was recently named as the patron for Leeds LGBT Group Marching Out Together, and this retirement is not entirely surprising. We wish him the best, and hope to see him back at Elland Road soon.
