|Lalas Discusses Galaxy, Beckham
During ESPN2 Studio Appearance
TOUCHING ON BECKHAM SITUATION: Lalas said he was a "little disappointed” in how Beckham’s loan to Italian Serie A club AC Milan was handled. Lalas: “Hello, a courtesy telephone call, a little bit of respect to call the coach so that head coach Bruce Arena knows what’s going on, knows that you’re being shopped around.” But he said Beckham is “going to do whatever it takes to play with the (English) national team, and that’s fine.” Lalas: "He helps whatever team he’s playing for, whether it’s the Galaxy or whether it’s AC Milan." Meanwhile, F Landon Donovan has been making overtures about playing for a club in Europe, and Lalas said, “If Landon wants to go, he should go. … Guess what? The Galaxy can survive without Landon Donovan” (ESPN2, 11/6).
