Manchester City fans in the Football Tavern are glad that the future of their forgotten man is settled after the Daily Mail revealed that Micah Richards is on the verge of becoming Aston Villa’s first signing.
The 26-year-old, who was previously out on loan at Fiorentina, is determined to prove his critics wrong in the Premier League, after failing to nail down a place at the Etihad.
He has had an impressive season out in Italy and it seems as though the fresh start may have revitalised his career.
The former England international was under the spotlight since an early age and just because he failed to meet his expectation, he has now slipped out of the forefront of peoples minds.
But punters in the Tavern ask the question, just because he was not good enough for England when he was young, it does not mean he is not ready to play for his country now.
Because not only is he physically and mentally stronger but he will have technically improved over time with more experience.
