The former Manchester City defender spends his time as a BBC pundit where he follows key games. Ahead of a historic match for Kidderminster as they play host to Premier League side West Ham in a FA cup Fourth Round tie that ended in a win for the Hammers, Richards could be seen having fun with the fans.
Richards joined the National League team Kidderminister fanbase as they sang songs outside their stadium before probably the biggest match in their history. He was in a joyous mood singing “Kidderminsinster are massive” which gave the fans something to cheer about. They responded with a song of their own by chanting “Micah Richards for Prime Minister”.
Kidderminster took a very early lead in the game through an effort from Alex Penny after he capitalized on poor defending from the Hammers defenders after a set-piece. This led to a wild celebration in the stands, with Richards drenched in beer as he celebrated the goal with the locals. Each tackle or clearance was wildly celebrated, as the sixth-tier team frustrated West Ham all day long.
The game continued that way till the 91st minute when Declan Rice danced his way in and scored a beautiful goal to force the game into extra time. Jarrod Bowen made sure that there was no upset like the one Manchester United suffered against Boro by scoring a 120th-minute winner to totally silence the crowd at the Aggborough Stadium.
In all, it was a beautiful game from the team that is currently 113 places behind West Ham. The London side coach David Moyes admitted after the game that they were fortunate to go through and nobody would have argued that. For Richards, it was a brilliant game and a good opportunity to have fun with the fans while also doing his job.
