CARSON, Calif. – In an interview with Sirus XM FC, LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena revealed that Landon Donovan is suffering from a bone bruise and will likely be available for selection for either Sunday's match against the San Jose Earthquakes or the club's season finale against the Seattle Sounders on Oct. 28.
Questions have surrounded Donovan since the Galaxy captain suffered the bone bruise during the match against Real Salt Lake two weeks ago that ultimately caused him to withdraw from International duty with the U.S. National Team.
Donovan was not on the training ground during the portion of Monday’s training session open for media availability, but Arena told reporters that the Galaxy captain was working in the gym during the club’s training session. The Galaxy boss went on to state that no decision had been made on Donovan’s status or left back Todd Dunivant, stating “it’s Monday, we’re playing on Sunday.”
When asked if the club had any long term worries about the status of Donovan, Arena quipped.
“Short term all the time with Landon, our worries are always short term with Landon,” said the Galaxy head coach. “One day to the next.”
