LITESPORT 38 Tuesday, 13 October 2009 London Lite TO BE FRANK, by neal collins Amankwaah: I was abused too, but KEVIN AMANKWAAH claims he was subjected to abusive comments from Millwall striker Neil Harris -- but the Swindon defender has apologised for his comments during Saturdays 1-1 draw. Amankwaah will also make a donation to the Everyman Cancer Charity, of which Harris is a patron. The 27-year-old had initially denied taunting Harris, 32, over the removal of a testicle during his battle against cancer. But a statement from Swindon read: Kevin acknowledges he may have reacted inappropriately in a verbal exchange. It continued: He made what could be construed as an insensitive comment. Kevin stated that his comments, which were very out of character, were made in what was a highly-competitive match, where passions were running high. Amankwaah added: While I feel I was the subject of some abusive comments I regret any offence my comment may have caused and extend an apology to Neil, a player and a man for whom I have a high regard. Harris was diagnosed with cancer in 2001 but made a successful return to action after intensive treatment, including surgery and radiotherapy. by david dibble Bust-up: Amankwaah, left, and Harris on Saturday Inbrief Mancini Notts going to County lROBERTO MANCINI is not on the verge of joining Notts County, according to the Italians agent. The former Inter Milan boss has been linked with a move to Meadow Lane after Ian McParland was sacked yesterday. There is no truth in it at all, and we have not been contacted by Notts County, said Maurizio De Giorgis. It is baloney. They have a long-term project but maybe its a bit too long for us. Everton upset at Fellaini row lEVERTON expect to have Marouane Fellaini available for selection this weekend despite suggestions Belgian authorities might try to prevent him playing.

So in January nothing will happen, said Vieira. Ill leave Inter in June but Ive not decided where Ill go. Ramseys quest for right recipe lARSENAL midfielder Aaron Ramsey insists Wales must start learning to be consistent throughout a match, rather than just in purple patches. The 18-year-old midfielder will be entrusted with the key playmaker role against Liechtenstein tomorrow. Ramsey said: We can play some good football like we showed when we scored our goal in Helsinki, but we need to be doing that on a more regular basis. that followed an 18-month interlude, Lampards main gripe has been the expectation that has surrounded -- and hampered -- the Three Lions during his time. The problem started with the golden generation label, which was given to the squad by then-FA chief executive Adam Crozier, who is now in the firing line as head of the Royal Mail. And look what happened to him, shrugged Lampard, when informed of the culprit. It was frustrating, he said. As play- ers, we just went out and played. But it FRANK LAMPARD goes into tomorrow nights final World Cup qualifier at Wembley insisting: I am determined to play 100 games for England. He will pick up his 76th cap against Belarus 10 years after his debut against Belgium in a friendly for Kevin Keegan at Sunderlands Stadium of Light. The Chelsea midfielder, 31, said: I want to make it 100. I am determined to try and do that. I have enjoyed every cap I have got and am very proud to have reached that level because I never thought I would get that number when I won my first cap. It doesnt seem like 10 years. I will try and carry on playing for my country and will work hard to do as much as I can for as long as I can. If it gets me to a century of caps great, although if it gets me to a World Cup win, it would be even better. Lampard,whomayreachthreefigures during Euro 2012 if he avoids injury, recallstheearlydayswhenhewasstrug- gling to break through internationally as a youngster at West Ham before his career-changing 11m move to Chelsea in 2001. Hesaid:Iwasdisregardedforacouple of years -- probably quite rightly because I dont think I was ready to play regularly for my country then -- and I have had my ups and downs. But anyone who has played for 10 years has probably had the same kind of thing.Iamveryproudtohavereached this level.
