Donovan Helps Everton Beat Chelsea
Everton manager David Moyes had this to say about Donovan’s performance against The Blues:
That’s quite a statement by Moyes, and says a lot considering Donovan had his best game against one, if not the best team in the English Premier League.
Donovan was very active in the game, as he helped earn a corner and then served the corner in to Saha for Everton’s first goal. He then drew a penalty when Ricardo Carvalho brought him down in the box, only to see Saha miss, and he also earned a yellow card. Throughout the game Donovan faced up against Ashley Cole, who he might have to face up against again in the World Cup when the U.S. plays England.
It’s a shame Donvoan has to return to the MLS in a month or so, since he’s doing so well. But I don’t think Donovan will make the mistake of leaving, sounds like he’s having too much fun and has hit his stride. He could be making a pile of money by staying and signing with Everton permanently. He makes a million now in the MLS. I’m sure he could double that if he played in the EPL. If Donovan has a solid World Cup, it’s on.
I wonder if Beckham sent him a text congratulating him on the win. I bet you he did. Beckham knows what a big step this is for Donovan since he’s been there done that. And and bet you Donovan has a lot more respect for Beckham now, since he knows what it’s like.
This is what Donovan had to say on via Twitter:
After the match versus Sporting Lisbon, Donovan will face up against Manchester United. It just keeps getting better and better, maybe Beckham will have a few tips for him when he plays his old team.
