Man City defender Richards gushes with praise for Psycho

Manchester City defender Micah Richards is enjoying his time with Team GB.

He says his ­decision to play for the British team has already been justified by his short spell as captain in Friday's 2-0 defeat to Brazil when he took the ­armband from Ryan Giggs.

Richards told the Sunday Mirror: "Once I wasn't named in the initial England squad coming to the Olympics was ­always going to be a massive honour.

"Stuart Pearce gave me my debut at ­Manchester City, and after getting the England job for one game and playing me in that game, I ­wanted to come and play for him.

"I've got so much respect for him and I want to give my all for him.

"He was always willing to give me a chance.

"Football has always been about opinions. I can't ­really argue about anything.

"At Manchester City last term we had a great ­season and that was ­always the most important thing to me."
