Rumour: Liverpool favourites as Micah Richards admits he could leave Manchester City
Micah Richards has stated that he might be willing to leave Manchester City in pursuit of first-team football, as reported by the Daily Star. Richards has been linked with Liverpool over the past few weeks.
A catalogue of injuries have restricted the 25-year-old to just two appearances this season, meaning that he failed to qualify for a title-winners medal.
When he has been fit, Richards has been firmly behind first-choice right-back Pablo Zabaleta in the pecking order.
Having spent 11 years at the club, Richards is greatly appreciative of Manchester City’s support but feels that it’s time to scope out his options in an attempt to save a floundering career.
“I’m proud for the boys, but gutted I didn’t qualify for an actual medal.
“But it’s a great day for the club. To get the double (league title and Capital One Cup) is excellent and now we have to build on it for next season.
“We’ll see what happens now. I’ll take the summer to think over things. I’ve been here 11 years and I’ve enjoyed every minute.
“I don’t know what the future holds – we’ll see. I just want to thank everyone here for what they’ve done for me so far. I’ll enjoy this then take it from there.
“I’m sure a lot of people hope I stay – but when your games are limited sometimes you have to do what’s best for your career. I need to address that at the end of the season. ”
