Landon Donovan's hot take throws shade at Premier League footballers

Never opposed to sharing his opinions, regardless of how controversial or unwanted they may be, ex-professional footballer Landon Donovan took to Twitter on Saturday morning to mock the water breaks taken during the day's Premier League matches.

Unseasonably warm weather in England led to water breaks during Saturday's Premier League matches, an unconventional stoppage in play popularized during last summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The only thing hotter than the weather was Donovan's take – who was certain to compare the heat in England to that of an MLS match in Houston – mocking footballers for taking part in a mandatory refreshment break.

Donovan is no stranger to sharing his volcanic-hot judgments on Twitter.

During this summer's Women's World Cup, Donovan tweeted praise for the veteran leadership of an out-of-form U.S. international attacker Abby Wambach, and in doing so, criticized men's team manager Jurgen Klinsmann for not selecting the ex-LA Galaxy midfielder for the 2014 World Cup.

Donovan's back-handed remark was met with plenty of criticism, though there was no more of a poignant response than that of fellow ex-U.S. international and current pundit, Alexi Lalas.
