Just because we like to keep you informed no matter how, well, “cruddy” the source is…and well we like to prepare you for the flood of tweets and RSS headlines that may misconstrue the bogusness.
An NBC report out this weekend has the following Landon Donovan quote:
Asked about the possibility of another jaunt to Europe come the winter, Donovan claimed he needs the extra rest in this World Cup year.
“If you ask me today I’m going to say, ‘Unequivocally no,’” the American international told reporters after a Los Angeles Galaxy training session Thursday. “I’m tired and my body needs a break. But once I’m off for a few weeks it might be a different answer.”
Meanwhile, talkSport (I’m not including the link), which makes World Soccer Reader and the Daily Mirror look like the Wall St. Journal has the following:
Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy insist Donovan is going nowhere but sources at the club claim they would listen to offers of around £11m for the 28-year-old.
Just keeping you abreast of the ridiculous world of tabloid soccer.
