Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has told Micah Richards where he will get a game in his team.

He has told defender Richards that he must see himself as a right-back rather than a centre half.

"Micah Richards knows what I think about him," he said. "We are not talking about qualities, we are talking about options.

"For centre-back we have four players for two places. At right back, we have just two players: Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Richards.

"I think it is the best way and the best use for us."
