USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann has welcomed Landon Donovan's return to action for LA Galaxy.

Klinsmann says he's keeping tabs on the ex-Everton star.

"I'm kind of just observing, to see where he's at and how he gets back into his rhythm," Klinsmann said. "We will watch his games obviously and judge his performance. I always said over the last two years that it's totally up to Landon what he intends to do and what he proves to us on the field."

Asked if he expected any resentment from other US players towards Donovan upon his pending return, Klinsmann answered briefly: "No."
