Donovan to return

Tue., Jan. 22, 2013, midnight

Landon Donovan plans to return for his ninth season with the Los Angeles Galaxy after spending several weeks weighing whether to call it quits, Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said Monday. Donovan (pictured), the team’s captain and all-time leading scorer, was not present as Major League Soccer’s reigning champion opened training camp at Home Depot Center, but after practice Arena said Donovan “will be playing in 2013 for the Galaxy.” Arena said it hasn’t been decided when Donovan, 30, would report to camp, or whether Donovan would be ready to play in the Galaxy’s opener March 3 against the Chicago Fire at home. “I wouldn’t want to report that now because we still haven’t finalized it,” said Arena, who spoke to Donovan on Sunday night. – L.A.
