Arena: Donovan "doubtful" for Vancouver match

CARSON, Calif. – LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena stated that it was “doubtful” that LA captain Landon Donovan would play for LA’s match against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday.

Donovan did not take part in practice on Friday and has missed LA’s last three games since returning from international duty with a left hamstring strain. Following practice, Arena addressed Donovan’s status. 

ARENA: “He’s close to returning, but he’ll need a little more time.”
