Rogers returns to train with LA

Robbie Rogers has returned to professional football to train with Los Angeles Galaxy three months after announcing he is gay and "stepping away" from the game.

Rogers, 25, was released by Leeds United in January after a loan spell at Stevenage, before retiring from the sport that had "hid his secret".

However, the former US international fuelled reports he is set to make a comeback by training with the Galaxy on Tuesday. The Chicago Fire hold Rogers' Major League Soccer rights, meaning the Galaxy would need to work out a trade in order to sign him on a permanent basis.

Galaxy boss Bruce Arena confirmed Rogers is in line for a contract at the club one day after NBA player Jason Collins came out as gay, becoming the first active player from a major US sporting league to do so.

"He looked a lot sharper than I thought he would today, given the fact he's been away from the game for a while" Arena told the Galaxy's website.

"The timing I guess is good. I think our league is a progressive league. Our league is a league comprised of all different races, colours and creeds, and to be accepting of a gay athlete I don't think is anything that's difficult for our league.

"We've had a great mentality of being open and tolerant of all different kinds of people, views, what have you. We've known Robbie a bunch of years and he's a first-class person and we're only too excited to have him here with us."
