Manchester City defender Micah Richards is set for a spell on the sidelines after the club confirmed that the England defender has had an operation on damaged cartilage in his right knee.
The 20-year-old travelled to London with club physiotherapist Ally Beattie for surgery, and he will be out for ´a matter of weeks´.
The injury is a recurrence of the one that prevented him from playing against Sheffield United and Derby earlier this year.
