Donovan won his record sixth Major League Soccer (MLS) Cup title when his Galaxy beat the New England Revolution, 2-1, on Dec. 7, per MLS Soccer's official website. Los Angeles' win helped Donovan broke a three-way tie with the retired Jeff Agoos and Colorado Rapids midfielder Brian Mullan, who both have five titles. Donovan splits his six titles with the San Jose Earthquakes (2001, 2003) and Galaxy (2005, 2011, 2012, 2104). Los Angeles defender Todd Dunivant joins Agoos and Mullan with his fifth MLS Cup Final stint on Sunday.
Donovan's seven MLS Cup appearances is also a new league record. The only loss came at the expense of Real Salt Lake five years ago. His 726 minutes in an MLF Final is a record among the league's players, per MLSSoccer.com.
Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena also solidified his title as MLS' all-time winningest head coach with his third title with Los Angeles. He has won five during his MLS coaching career, two of which were with D.C. United.
