Landon Donovan Coached Soccer Team Speak Out and Stand Up
San Diego Loyal SC supported their teammate, by forfeiting Wednesday's match against Phoenix Rising FC.
Referring to the homophobic slur that was directed towards one of his players Donovan said: “Our guys, to their immense credit, just said, we're not going to stand for this. They were very clear in that moment that they were giving up all hopes of making the playoffs, even though they were beating one of the best teams in the league, handily. But they said that doesn't matter. There's things more important in life and we have to stick up for what we believe in. And so they made the decision to walk off.”
