Landon Donovan has put his hand to help an injury ridden Galaxy side.
As per Donovan, he is so emotional about Galaxy that he can’t see it in trouble and he felt he could probably contribute a little bit in the capacity of a player if he re-joined.
But, with no soccer under his belt in 24 months, he had his doubts and he went to the head coach to discuss the possibility with him and ask for his opinion on it and when Bruce Arena told him that it would not be the worst thing in the world for Galaxy to have him on board the second time, Donovan got convinced.
Donovan had nearly 10 minutes to play on his second debut last night and he thought he couldn’t match the speed of the rest of the 21 players on the ground despite all of them being very tired by that time in the match.
This is what he had to say post the Galaxy-victory, “Look, I stepped in at a time when there was hardly any fresh leg in there. Still, nobody was as slow as me. So, that suggests I am nowhere close at this second.”
“I have to ensure I am making a difference when I am in and not just ambling around.”
“This match, I would say I probably did my bit in the break time when I spoke to the boys and while with any sort of contribution, I am happy, I would definitely like to do more with my play.”
Galaxy next travels to Sporting Kansas City for their 30th league match of the season.
