In the latest edition of the LA Galaxy All-Access Podcast with Joe Tutino, Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena offers his perception of Landon Donovan, LA's upcoming road trip as well as other topics.
Landon Donovan drew considerable attention after missing a penalty kick in LA's 1-0 loss to Houston at the weekend, but Arena told Tutino that while his form is still improving, he expects the best from Donovan soon.
“He’s getting there. He’s not quite where we want him to be, but I think when you have the kind of lay off that he had. It’s a little unpredictable how much time that he’s going to need to get in form,” Arena told All-Access. “I think that he’s been with us probably five weeks now, if I’m not mistaken and you can see his improvement. Hopefully, in another five weeks, we’re going to see a lot more. Hopefully, he’s about to turn the corner and play consistently in each and every game as we move forward.”
As for Todd Dunivant and Robbie Keane, Arena is optimistic about their status.
“They’re both much improved and I’m sure that they’re going to play on this road trip,” Arena said.
