Speaking to media for the first time since being left out of the USA World Cup squad, Landon Donovan admitted to being shellshocked by the decision, and disagreed with head coach Jurgen Klinnsman's statement that other players were "slightly ahead of" the LA Galaxy forward.
Donovan wouldn’t go as far as to bash Klinsmann for the decision, but stated categorically that he disagreed with the U.S. coach’s claim that other players were ahead of him.
“I don’t agree with that assessment. I think I was as least as good as everybody else in camp,” Donovan said. “I think you guys that know me well, know that I’m pretty honest when it comes to my assessment.
