Landon Donovan: Maybe Fish. He’s suffered an injury and he won’t play for a while, but when he returns there will be pressure on him. There is on all of us, because for two years we’ve missed the playoffs.
Landon Donovan: In the last year, it was Juan Pablo Angel. What a player! Christian Gomez, too, and one that doesn’t get a lot of attention is Juan Toja in
Antonio Castillo, Caracas: Hi Landon, how are you? Have you played in
Landon Donovan: I’ve only seen
Marcos, Cd. Mexico: In Mexico we hate you with all our hearts, more than even Ricardo Lavolpe. What do you think of that?
Landon Donovan: It doesn’t matter if people hate me. For me, that’s not important, though I don’t like if people say bad things. I want there to be respect, because I really respect the Mexican people. When I was young I had and still today have a lot of Mexican friends.
Landon Donovan: Sure, it will create a great rivalry in the league and for the Galaxy. I’ve always expected a team in
Landon Donovan: It doesn’t worry me, I don’t think it’s important for us. I don’t pick the coach, but for me, it’s tough in some games when the team doesn’t play well and others blame the weather. But that’s soccer, that’s normal.
Hugo, Caracas, Venezuela: What’s your impresión of your new coach Rudd Gullit? Did you admire him as a kid? He used to be famous like Beckham for his hair – is Gullit planning to use
Landon Donovan: When I was young I watched his games. He was a very good player. For us, he’s good, we work a lot with him, he asks a lot of us, and that’s good because we need a coach that has experience with good players and good teams and that’s perfect.
Landon Donovan: It’s great, it’s a dream. I’m the type that needs good passes, crosses and I play better when I have a player like that alongside of me. He helps a lot and makes me a better player. Last year, he was a little shy because he wasn’t playing. He was injured. He hates it when he can’t play. This year he is better and the season should be better.
Landon Donovan: Thanks for your questions and thanks for supporting the Galaxy. We’ll see you soon!
