Los Angeles Galaxy Head Coach Bruce Arena is very happy he at least is getting one of his loaned out players back for the start of the season.

Speaking to his club's website, Arena said: "Obviously the quality of our team changes considerably and the personality of the club changes considerably. Bringing Landon back is a boost. He is arguably the best player, if not one of the best players in MLS.

"Obviously there is a sense of relief knowing we're getting a player like Landon back here. Whether there's normalcy around here I'm not sure of, but I do think we're steadily moving along and getting our feet on the ground and heading in the right direction. We're doing everything we can to get the team ready for March 22."

Los Angeles Galaxy face D.C. United at home 22nd March for their 2009 season opener.
