Landon Wary Of Altidore


Landon Donovan has warned his Everton team-mates that one of his international colleagues must be watched at the weekend.

The LA Galaxy man isn’t the only on-loan forward making an impact in the Premier League this season, with Hull’s 20-year-old frontman, borrowed from Villarreal, proving a real threat this season.

Altidore, Donovan and indeed Tim Howard were on the same side on Wednesday evening, as the Stars and Stripes were beaten 2-1 by the Netherlands in Amsterdam. 

But four days on, in what will be the Donovan’s final game at Goodison, the on-loan star knows that his American team-mate Altidore will be a danger.

Donovan exclusively told evertontv: "Jozy is a very talented footballer and when he really fancies it, he can be a top player. In the last few weeks, I think he's played really well for Hull. 

He added: "Physically, he's as gifted as any striker I've ever played with or against and he's got all the gifts. When he means it, he's a very good player."

Donovan - who returns to his native California after the visit to Birmingham City on March 14 - says that his stay with Everton has been great not only on the pitch, but off it too.

He says: "For me, obviously the football has been enjoyable. 

"But in my opinion, a place, city or country is about the people - and the people here have been fantastic. I think that when you have that, it's always going to make your experience enjoyable."
