Sunderland's Richardson delighted with brace

Sunderland midfielder Kieran Richardson was delighted with his double against Atletico Madrid yesterday.

"It was nice to score two goals," Richardson said. "Results are not the be-all-and-end-all in pre-season, but I want to win every game I play.

"I have no doubt I will score more goals this season.

"I have confidence in my ability and the team-mates around me.

"The new manager has come in with his new staff and it has been really good for the lads.

"I like that role behind the striker. I think I can get chances to score and make them as well.

"I would enjoy that role, but we don't know what the manager will do with the formation and I will do my best wherever he asks me to play."
