Richards facing month on sidelines

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini's joy at winning the Community Shield was tempered with the news that defender Micah Richards will be sidelined for a month with an ankle injury.

Richards suffered the setback when on Olympic duty for Great Britain in the quarter-final clash with South Korea. City initially thought Richards would only be out of action for a week but the prognosis is worse than first feared.

Speaking after the 3-2 win over Chelsea at Villa Park, Mancini said: "With Micah, we thought it was a small injury but instead he will longer."
