Galaxy’s Donovan Excited To Return To The Pitch

´╗┐CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Time off from soccer is an entirely new concept for Landon Donovan. He can’t recall another moment in his career that he was this excited to return to the pitch.

That’s good news for his Los Angeles Galaxy and the team’s quest to capture an elusive title. But it could spell trouble for the rest of the league hoping to take out the revamped and hungry Galaxy.

Being in camp this time of year is slightly foreign to the Galaxy midfielder. Donovan missed the bulk of lastseason’s team training while playing on loan with Everton in Europe, returning for one preseason contest before jumping into the grind of the regular season.
