Last but not least: Micah Richards is currently the vice-captain of Manchester City.
It’s all well and good being homegrown and a youth product, but Richards goes that extra bit further by showing leadership and maturity on the pitch.
Having made his debut for City back in 2005, he seems to have been around forever, but we’d do well to remind ourselves that he is still only 24.
One-club men are few and far between these days.
Sometimes it’s because they’re not quite good enough.
Richards is, and he should stay at the Etihad Stadium for a long time to come.
