Micah Richards is one of the most exciting young talents in football, and won his first Premier League winners' medal with Manchester City in 2012.
Having made his debut in 2005 at the age of 17, Micah quickly established himself as a first-team regular and announced his arrival on the world stage with a last minute headed equaliser against Aston Villa in the FA Cup. He was named Manchester City's Young Player of the Year during the 2005-06 season, as well as captaining England U21s to the final of the U21 European Championships. In 2008 Micah was nominated as the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year Awards.
Despite the huge wealth of the club following its purchase by Sheikh Mansour in 2008, Micah has remained an ever-present for City. Micah has already made more than 270 appearances for City's senior side, as well 14 appearances thus far for England.
Micah secured his first piece of major silverware with City as he helped the side to the FA Cup trophy in 2011, including a late winner against Reading to book Roberto Mancini's men a place in the semi-final of the competition. He made his Champions League debut in 2012, and helped City win the league title for the first time in 44 years in May. During the 2011-12 season, he stood in as captain on several occasions and boasted the most assists of any defender in the league and was nominated for the club's Player of the Year award.
