Landon Donovan speaks about being cut off
May 25 , 2014
Landon Donovan spoke to the media on Saturday and said he thinks U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann wasn't only thinking about soccer while making the decision to cut him off the team.
"I think if I'm being judged solely on what happened in camp, then I absolutely deserved to be going to Brazil," he said.
"I think I was at least as good as everybody else in camp. I think you guys that know me well know I'm pretty honest when it comes to my assessment. When I say I don't play well, I didn't play well. When I say I played well, I think I played well. I think I trained and played very well in camp. I think I was one of the better players. If I had gone in and thought I didn't deserve it, I can live with that. But that's not the case here."
