City star wants oxygen tent

Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Micah Richards has told reporters he is willing to buy an oxygen tent for his house, after he was stretchered off in an England under 21 clash with Denmark last week.

It is still unclear how long Richards will be out of action for, however the 22 year old feared after the England game that he might miss the all important FA Cup semi final with Manchester United.

While Richards believed he would be out for at least a month, England under 21 manager Stuart Pearce laughed off suggestions the diagnosis is correct at this stage.

"He's got a hamstring problem and he's diagnosed himself as being out for four weeks - that's Dr Richards for you," Pearce said.


"That could be four days though, as that's him diagnosing himself!”

Richards is due to have a scan on his leg today, and told reporters, "I will do anything and everything to make that game [against Manchester United].

“I knew straight away what I had done because I heard the dreaded ‘ping’. It is a bit sore but I’m hoping it is not too bad.”

The defender is willing to use any methods possible to get back in action for Manchester City.

“Some of the other lads have used an oxygen tent to help them recover more quickly from injuries so I am willing to give it a go. I will sleep in the thing if necessary.

"I want to be available for that game against United. It is going to be a great occasion."
