Mancini challenges Micah

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has again challenged Micah Richards to prove he is the best right-back in England.

The 23-year-old now has the opportunity to impress another national team boss following this week's departure of Fabio Capello, who had been overlooking him. Richards has been behind Liverpool's Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker of Tottenham in the England pecking order despite his fine form for the Barclays Premier League leaders.

Mancini said: "Micah has everything to become a top full-back. I think he has improved a lot in the last year but he can still improve, he can do better. At this moment for the national team, probably Johnson or Walker are better. But I don't want to say Micah can't play for the national team - if he wants, Micah can play always."
