“Now comes a mediocre player with a plaintive interview and false claims, and denounces the work of the coach. The player Landon Donovan, at Bayern, was once considered unsuitable for the second team. I find such behavior unspeakable, unworthy of an international player."
-- Longtime German coach Felix
Magath, now the Fulham manager, on remarks Donovan made saying he thought, tactically, the USA was not set up to succeed at the World Cup. Magath suggested players who were cut from their
national team should do anything in their power to get back into the team and "not announce their wounded vanity with verbal attacks." (Facebook)
