WHAT NEXT FOR MICAH RICHARDS?

Micah Richards has done so much for Aston Villa.


His name is up there in the list of players that saw the club through its recent darkest days upon relegation from the top flight. The player skippered the club through its first relegation from the Premier League, after joining in 2015.

With the club now in the Championship, there are reports that he might move to Nottingham Forest. When Champions League winner Roberto di Matteo was tasked with the responsibility of helping the club back to the Premier League, he decided to freeze out the defender. Richards played just two games before Steve Bruce took over in October.

Ritchie De Laet became the first choice in the right back role while Alan Hutton and Leandro Bacuna ranked higher than Richards in the pecking order. He eventually got some game time when De Laet was sidelined on a long term basis, getting his first game against Wolves. Since then Bruce has been naming him in his substitutes’ list even though he rarely calls on him.

WALKER GETS SHIRT NUMBER #2

Manchester City have unveiled their latest addition Kyle Walker.


The top rated defender joins from Tottenham Hotspur is what might make him the most expensive defender in the world. The England international agreed a five year deal with the Etihad to become the third new face following earlier additions of Bernardo Silva and Ederson.

The deal is reported to be £45 million with add-ons taking it to £50 million. Some other reports claim the deal would cross the £50 million benchmark, eclipsing the deal for David Luiz when he moved from Chelsea to PSG for £50 million net in 2014. Walker is a top player who is expected to hit the targets of Premier League and Champions League to unlock the added funds in add-ons.

“I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started. Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world and I feel he can help me take my game to a new level,” Walker said.

Micah Richards is suffering in Aston Villa and he needs a resurrection

Micah Richards is a player that used to perform in the Premier League at a consistent basis and at a high level as he was a performer of Manchester City a few years ago but the English defender has slowly been losing his influence and impact in the world of football.


The veteran defender spent 10 seasons performing with Manchester City before being released on June of 2015 where he consequently would join Aston Villa and his career would start to experience a decline.

Even with the arrival of Micah Richards, Aston Villa was relegated to the 2nd tier English football league, the English League Championship and in the 2016-17 season, Richards only made 2 appearances and now his future is up in the air.

The contract of Micah Richards in Aston Villa extends until 2019 but considering his lack of playing time and almost non-existential role in the English club, other clubs could take this opportunity to swoop in and sign a player who has experience competing in top competitions including the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League.
