OFFICIAL: Micah Richards has announced he is retiring from football and he will now concentrate on his business interests and will be back working with City in an ad hoc off-the-field role.
Micah Richards: “Once a blue, always a blue. City has always been my spiritual home and where I enjoyed my best years as a player. Being part of the side that ended the long wait for silverware – in 2011 and 2012 – was very special…”
M. Richards: “It kick-started this new era and the club has never looked back. What has happened since has been amazing. I feel lucky to have been asked back to help spread the City message and can’t wait to get going. I know it will be fun because City fans are incredible.”
