Just days after the announcement that he will not be going back to Europe for a 3-month loan, Landon Donovan has revealed that he wanted to go back to Everton but the LA Galaxy stop him.
Earlier in the week, Donovan had said this about not going on loan:
“I feel it is important to continue to rest and recover this off-season as opposed to going on loan. I enjoyed my time at Everton last season and still appreciate all the support their fans have given me. I never considered being loaned to a club other than Everton, but I have been playing nearly non-stop for the past two years and I believe that this decision will allow me to perform at my best for the Galaxy and the national team throughout the upcoming year. I look forward to rejoining my Galaxy team-mates for the start of pre-season training next month and beginning our quest for another MLS Cup championship.”
Sounds like is still open to playing in England, but knows enough about the Everton v Liverpool rivalry, that he has discounted playing for the Everton’s biggest rival.
