LA Galaxy stars Donovan, Gonzalez not going out on loan - Arena

LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena insists that star duo Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez will not be going out on loan this winter.

Key forward Donovan and centre-back Gonzalez have been linked with offseason moves to Europe but Arena says that no Galaxy player will be heading anywhere after a tough 2013 for both club and country.

"Our players aren't going anywhere," he said on a podcast on the Galaxy's official website. "Even though we argue that the [offseason] layoff is going to be too long, he (Gonzalez) can go in camp with the US national team in January, along with Landon Donovan.

"Our players have had a really tough run this year, in particular Robbie [Keane] and Omar with all their requirements with national teams.

"They've had a full 11 months of play and they need some time off and then they need to get back here in LA and be ready for a challenging campaign that includes in the beginning not only the league but the [CONCACAF] Champions League."
