Sunderland midfielder Gardner warns Man Utd players of "absolutely horrendous" pitch

Sunderland midfielder Craig Gardner has warned Manchester United's players of the Hong Kong pitch ahead of today's game with Kitchee FC.

Gardner knows it will not be pretty after Saturday's defeat to Manchester City.

"The pitch was absolutely horrendous," he said.

"It wasn't bad enough for the game to be cancelled but it was soft. It was dead.

"You couldn't pass the ball forward because it wasn't rolling properly and you were scared in case you passed it inside in case it stopped rolling.

"You had no choice but to hit it long."
