Weekend hat trick hero Landon Donovan says he can’t be bothered with complaints on his goal celebrations aired by Chivas USA boss Preki.
The Galaxy won the match 5-2, with the U.S. star infuriating the Goats by leaping for joy in front of their derby rivals’ bench after two fo the goals.
“I do not appreciate it, and we don’t appreciate it as a club,” said Preki after the game. “It shows a lot of disrespect.”
Donovan, however, had a different take altogether.
“If you don’t like me jumping to celebrate, then don’t let me score,” he told the Press Enterprise. “Secondly, I tried to apologize to him because he was upset about it and I didn’t mean anything by it.”
“If he is not willing to accept my apology, then he is not much of a man.”
