Manchester City: Micah Richards can’t understand why the England he refused to play for won’t select him
MODERN football mysteries: Manchester City’s Micah Richards is superstitious:
“I’ve been stuck on 13 caps for some time now – unlucky for some! I’m not sure what the answer is. I just need to get fit and play regularly.”
Back in the summer of 2012, the Star reported:
Roy Hodgson wanted Richards on the standby list for Euro 2012 but the Manchester City defender refused…
Richards refused a call-up to the standby list, and then watched as uncapped Liverpool full-back Martin Kelly ended up in the squad.
Kelly had agreed to go on the list and flew to Poland after injuries to Gary Cahill, Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry left England short.
Someone get the detectives…
