Here's a sentence you will never hear again: Bradley Wright-Phillips overshadowed Robert Lewandowski. Yes, the New York Red Bulls striker's belting equaliser cancelled out Lewandowski's opener for Bayern Munich, as an irritable Pep Guardiola watched his side lose to the MLS All-Stars.
Guardiola was reportedly so angry with some overzealous tackling he departed with a one-fingered salute at All-Stars coach Caleb Porter after the German champions were beaten 2-1.
Landon Donovan, who spent a brief loan stint at Bayern in 2009, claimed the winner in the 70th minute on his record 14th All-Stars appearance. Germany's World Cup winners Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lamm, Thomas Muller and Mario Götze emerged nine minutes later but Schweinsteiger had to withdraw through injury following a hefty challenge.
"I understand he doesn't want his players to get hurt," Donovan said when asked about Guardiola's acrimonious departure. "They're not great tackles but they're not the worst tackles I've ever seen and I hope Schweiny's not hurt.
"I'm not sure why they're going after the officials."
