Klinsmann leaves LA Galaxy star Donovan out of USA squad

Jurgen Klinsmann has left Landon Donovan out of his USA squad for January's camp.

The LA Galaxy star is arguably his country's best player but will not be involved with the team in the first camp of 2013 with Klinsmann explaining the reasons why.

"Landon has not been invited because obviously he's taking his break," Klinsmann told Fox Soccer's Goals on Sunday. "He's thinking about his future.

"He's not at a point yet where he knows what he wants to do. It's a simple as that. That's why we didn't invite Landon. We're as curious as everyone else as to what his decision will be at a future time. But right now he's not part of our camp."
