LA Galaxy's Donovan targets Champions League return

LA Galaxy attacker Landon Donovan isn't certain when he'll be ready to take the field for the LA Galaxy, but he hopes he'll be up to playing a role in the upcoming CONCACAF Champions League games against Monterrey.

Donovan, who returned this week to the Galaxy after a nearly four-month leave of absence, says he'll need some time to get back into rhythm, but the semifinal series against the two-time defending champion is in his sights.

"I could potentially see myself playing some role," Donovan said in a teleconference with reporters on Thursday. "I think it might be a little early to say I'm going to be playing significant minutes, but you never know. Obviously, I understand the importance of this tournament to our club and our team and our organization. And if I can contribute and I feel good, then I want to contribute."
