Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo was disappointed to lose to the MLS Allstars.

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo was disappointed to lose to the MLS Allstars.

Chelsea had come from behind to lead in Philadelphia, only to concede an equaliser and then an injury-time winner against the pick of the US league, which included both David Beckham and Thierry Henry.

“We’re disappointed with the result, we are always looking to win and we were a little bit stretched in the second half,” Di Matteo told chelseafc.com. “I made some changes and the team was maybe not as together as in the first half where it was a bit more settled.

“The MLS team looked very sharp and were obviously in season so looked sharper than us. For us it was important to get players on the pitch and as many minutes as possible. We have to look to improve the way we play a little bit but I was happy with the play in the first half and it was a good test for us.”

Sunderland waiting for Gyan to make promised donation to Charity Foundation | Premiership News | Tribal Football

Sunderland are waiting for a promised donation to their Charity Foundation from former striker Asamoah Gyan.

Sunderland are waiting for a promised donation to their Charity Foundation from former striker Asamoah Gyan.

The Daily Mail reports the former African footballer of the year, and Sunderland’s record signing, was allowed to join UAE club Al-Ain in a £200,000-a-week tax-free deal at the beginning of last season.

As part of the lucrative move, Gyan agreed to make a sizeable donation to the club’s own community scheme which has ploughed millions into the region through education and football programmes for the last nine years.

Gyan, whose total earnings in the last year will top £10.4million, has failed to pay the donation, believed to be in the region of £100,000.

A club spokesperson confirmed: “The donation has not been received to date, however we are hopeful that this is merely an oversight on the part of Asamoah and his representatives.

“The Foundation does a tremendous amount of work with young people in the North East region and a donation of this kind will help to fund some fantastic programmes and support youngsters from some of the most vulnerable areas of society.”

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will never suffer from a lack of confidence.

The Ox’s cocksure attitude can help the transition into life among elite footballers.

As does an upbringing in a football family. His father Mark was also an England international and his Uncle Neville a professional footballer.

“You have to have that confidence otherwise you won’t go anywhere,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“If you don’t believe in yourself, no-one else will. But you also have to keep your feet on the ground, realise it is a very hard league and that you cannot take your foot off the gas at any time.

“In one moment, it can go from being good to being bad.

“You have to make sure it doesn’t happen so you have to approach every training session and every game in the same way. That’s what I’ll do. I’ll keep my head down and keep working.”

Vincent Kompany insists there’s been a lot of hard work behind Manchester City‘s success.

Kompany admitted it had not always been plain sailing at the Etihad Stadium, but relished the challenge of leading the side.

He said: “I have never denied that this can sometimes be the hardest team in the league of which to be captain; but like I said I am all about responsibility and challenge.

“This Man City project was probably one of the most difficult projects in Europe to be part of and so far we have all done a good job even though a lot of people said it (success) wasn’t going to happen so quickly.

“I like the kind of characters that we have in our team; I like the challenges we have ahead of us. Now is the time to build the culture of winning we are in the right time; we are in the right moment.”

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was satisfied with his players after their defeat to AS Roma in Boston.

Liverpool looked slick at times against opponents that boasted a significant fitness advantage and there were more glimpses that his methods are beginning to sink in.

“I have to say I was very pleased,” said Rodgers. “There were real positives in the game. Roma are ahead of us in their preparations and I was very impressed with them but this was step up and just what we needed.

“Once we get our top quality players back, the England players who have only just returned from holiday, you will see another step up.

“It was good to see the younger lads get some minutes under their belts. It was a really positive experience.”
