Micah Richards shut down Sol Campbell on live TV during Man City vs Arsenal

Micah Richards and Sol Campbell

Manchester City managed to overcome Arsenal 1-0 in a scrappy affair at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Raheem Sterling managed to score the only goal of the game in the first-half.

Phil Foden found space on the left side of the box but he could only see his effort saved by Bernd Leno.

Unfortunately for Arsenal, the ball fell straight to Sterling who passed the ball into the net with his wrong foot.

Micah Richards and Sol Campbell were both on punditry duty for Sky Sports.


And there was a funny moment where the former completely shut down Campbell when he was trying to make a point.

The former Arsenal defender was berating Hector Bellerin's defending for the goal.

Campbell was trying to argue that Bellerin should have showed Foden on the outside on his 'weaker' left-foot.

But he was completely unaware that Foden was in fact left-footed.

"If he does you outside... you know he's [Foden] right-footed as well. He [Bellerin] should know that already.

"Once those guys get into your zone, you should know that as a defender. As a defender you should know: left or right, or maybe both."

It was at that point where Richards had had enough. 

He couldn't help but interrupt Campbell and let him know where he was going wrong.

"Foden's left!" He simply said with a look of amazement on his face.

Oh no, Sol. You've had a shocker.

That's not the actions of someone who described himself as 'one of the greatest minds in football' back in 2018.

“I'm intelligent enough, it's not like I played on a fox and dog pitch all my life," he said after being rejected by Oxford for the manager role in 2018, per the Independent.

"I can't believe some people, I'm one of the greatest minds in football and I'm being wasted because of a lack of experience or 'maybe he talks his mind too much'."
