Manchester City friendly in Vietnam incurs big financial losses

Raheem Sterling scored a brace as Manchester City scored eight goals in last week's friendly in Vietnam.

The chief organiser of last week's exhibition game by Manchester City in Vietnam says that he incurred big financial losses, despite a near sell-out crowd.

The chairman of the SHB Bank, Do Quang Hien, reportedly spent the equivalent of more than US$1.8 million for the 2013 Premier League champions to play in Hanoi.

Manchester City beat a Vietnam XI 8-1 before almost 40,000 fans at the My Dinh National Stadium on July 31.

Manchester City can fix defence without dropping Vincent Kompany

The ESPN FC crew give their opinions on who will win the Premier League this season, and while predictions vary, everyone agrees that Chelsea will be the side to beat.

The Manchester Evening News offered its readers a choice of six different centre-back combinations for the start of the season in an online poll Monday. It is perhaps a sign of the times that the sixth option might well be worth dwelling on longest after a strangely unfulfilling preseason for the club.

That sixth option involves the pairing of steady Martin Demichelis with young gun Jason Denayer and there's something to be said about it. Vincent Kompany's injury-ravaged 2014-15 season does not tell...

Barker, who has a fine goalscoring record at junior levels, helped City reach the final of the FA Youth Cup last season.

Raheem Sterling & Co. ended their preseason friendly campaign with a whimper on Saturday.

Manchester City crashed to a 4-2 defeat to Stuttgart as their preseason fixtures ended with a shambolic defensive display.

City were 4-0 down after 36 minutes even though manager Manuel Pellegrini fielded first-choice goalkeeper Joe Hart and a back four, of Bacary Sagna, Vincent Kompany, Eliaquim Mangala and Aleksandar Kolarov, that could start the Premier League campaign.

Filip Kostic, Daniel Didavi and Daniel Ginczek, with a swift brace, scored for Stuttgart, who only finished 14th in the...
