â€śItâ€™s a great opportunity for me to see how football is played here,â€ť Donovan said on Thursday. â€śIâ€™d like to play in Europe. In Leverkusen, I was young and I did not have the necessary maturity. I wasnâ€™t ready yet. Now, I am different person, a different player.â€ť
Bayern coach Juergen Klinsmann has nothing but praise for Donovan and many insiders in the game believe this is the start of a long term deal for him to return to Germany.
â€śHe is the exceptional player in North America, including Mexico,â€ť Klinsmann said. â€śLandon knows that Europe is where itâ€™s at in football. And he has all the qualities to break through in Europe.â€ť
Munich will have to negotiate with MLS to secure the player in January during the next transfer window.
