Richardson double sinks Atletico

Date published: Sunday 26th July 2009 9:20

The former Manchester United midfielder opened the scoring just before half-time from the penalty spot after Steed Malbranque was tripped by Juan Valera inside the area.

And Richardson doubled the Wearsiders’ advantage with four minutes to go, coolly slotting home Carlos Edwards’ pass from the edge of the area.

Atletico, fourth in La Liga last season, rarely threatened Martin Fulop’s goal despite fielding Diego Forlan in the first half and Sergio Aguero after the break.
