Man City’s Richards keen to return to England fold

Manchester City defender Micah Richards has admitted he would like to be part of the England set-up under Roy Hodgson despite missing out on the squad for Euro 2012, the Daily Mail has reported, with the Premier League winner adding he will never retire from international duty.



Richards was not selected for Hodgson’s 23-man squad and then asked not to be included on the stand-by list, telling the Mail that the reason he did so was not a fit of pique at not being named in the initial party, but rather a simple desire to get on the pitch at the Olympics and play.


I have always said I wanted to play for England,” Richards said, adding: “I will never turn my back on England. A lot of people asked me why I didn’t go on stand-by. It was nothing to do with not wanting to play. I wanted to play. Stuart [Pearce] has given me the chance to play.


Richards has 13 England caps to his name already, having made his international bow in November 2006, aged only 18 and with fewer than 30 club appearances under his belt. Richards featured frequently under Steve McClaren, making 11 appearances during the tenure of the former Middlesbrough boss, but fell out of favour under McClaren’s successor Fabio Capello.
