What They're Saying: DeAndre Yedlin

“If you get taken out after 20 minutes it’s a big blow to you. From that point I lost confidence a little bit. It’s embarrassing, kind of humiliating a little bit, and for the next three weeks it was a period of feeling sorry for myself, that sort of thing, pouting about it. That’s when I said ‘Alright, you’ve got to do something about it. Nobody’s going to help you improve except yourself. If you don’t want it then nobody’s going to want it for you.'"

-- DeAndre Yedlin on the turning point to his season at Sunderland, after he was pulled from a game against Watford. He got his chance two months later when right back Billy Jones  was injured and kept the starting job after that. (Goal.com)
