Richards relishing 'special' derby

Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Micah Richards claims there has "never been a better time" to beat arch rivals Manchester United.

Having come through the City Academy, Richards is all too familiar with the long years the club have spent in their neighbours' shadow. City are bidding to change all that by wresting the Barclays Premier League from United's grasp in the coming weeks and Monday's clash between the two clubs is absolutely vital.

City can reclaim top spot in the table with two games remaining with a victory, and Richards told the club's official website, www.mcfc.co.uk: "Because United have always been better than us and have always had the bragging rights, it just makes it a little bit more special."
