Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis has claimed that he does not know whether Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane will be fit for the match against them. LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena ruled out the possibility of both these crucial players playing against Real Salt Lake, but Kreis has claimed that he doubts the fitness status of both these players. He expects both players to be in the lineup by the time the match kicks off. Kreis will have a lot of reasons to be especially worried about Robbie Keane because the former Tottenham striker has been quite brilliant against Real Salt Lake.
He joined the league back in 2011 and he has been able to score a lot of goals against Real Salt Lake. Kreis has said that need not be warned about Keane because they have seen in person the damage that can be done by the 32-year-old. Donovan has just returned from a four-month sabbatical, but he is still one of the best players in the league. Kreis has said that Real Salt Lake will be preparing for the match thinking that both Keane and Donovan will be playing. He has stressed the importance of limiting the space available to both these players in order to stop conceding goals.
“This is Bruce Arena we’re talking about. He is a good player, a very, very good player. He is one of those players that you have to always be mindful of where he is and try not to give him too much space to run at you. When he turns and can get a full head of steam running at you, that is when he is most dangerous. We will try to limit his space and limit his opportunities. I think we look forward to this challenge,” said Kreis.

The former AC Milan defender Alessandro Nesta is expected to be out for the next few matches according to the manager of Montreal Impact, Marco Schällibaum. The manager has confirmed after the win over Toronto FC that the player has suffered an injury to the adductor. As a result, he had to be substituted from the match. The 36-year-old defender joined the MLS club after being released from his contract at AC Milan. He is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, but injuries have robbed his importance with the games in recent years.
Fans have been left to wonder whether the pitch of Montreal Impact is a reason for the injury suffered by their star player after just three games into the season. Nesta made his debut for Montreal Impact in the match against New York Red Bulls, and he was widely judged to be the man of the match. He has been a vital cog in the Montréal team that has managed three consecutive victories to go top of the table. Nesta, though, has said that he does not know the reason for this injury. He has said that he has been playing on the turf for the last two matches.
“We have other solutions and we’ll wait for a diagnosis first. Maybe it’s not that bad. Maybe he’ll even be able to play next Saturday [against the New York Red Bulls]. But we still have enough quality in the squad that we’ll make the necessary changes,\” said the Montréal manager. “I don’t know. I trained for one month on turf. I played two games on turf. I don’t know,\” said the defender after the news about his injury broke out. The team will be playing against New York Red Bulls in the next match at home.
