Landon Donovan training with Bayern Munich
L.A. Galaxy star Landon Donovan joined Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich for a 10-day practice stint to stay in shape, and says he wouldn't mind staying longer.
Donovan acknowledged this could lead to a more permanent arrangement.
"If January rolls around and there's interest, and the league is willing to discuss it, I would be excited to talk about it," Donovan said on his Web site.
I guess Donovan is ready now to play in Europe. He had an unsuccessful attempt to break through in Germany's top league when he was under contract to Bayer Leverkusen from 2001-05. He played in seven Bundesliga games. I believe he was home sick or something like that. Good Luck this time.
