Man City boss Eriksson: Richards best I've worked with
"It is important to remember this young man is 19," said Eriksson.
"I don't remember having a defender that strong and that quick at any age. That is a combination that is very rare indeed.
"He wins everything in the air and can fight with any centre-forward and then, if he makes a mistake, he has the speed to repair it.
"His pace is incredible. At 19, you just don't see that."
