Lescott says Man City right-back Richards could become world’s best

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott says his teammate Micah Richards has the potential to become the best right-back in the world, MCFC.com reports.

Richards has been in fine form this season and continued his recent impressive spell with a goal in City’s 3-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Lescott believes the 23-year-old is currently the best player in his position in the Premier League, and is backing him to improve even further.

“Micah has been in immense form all season,” said Lescott. “His confidence is really high. He is in the best form of his career and has the world at his feet. I would say he is the best right-back in the league just now. If he continues this form he will be the best in the world.”
