Man City defender Richards missing until January

Manchester City defender Micah Richards will not return until the end of January.

The diagnosis comes despite manager Roberto Mancini’s claim that the knee injury he ­sustained against Swansea last month would only sideline him for four weeks.

Richards had a cartilage ­operation, and although it was a success, he has been advised by his specialist that he needs 12 weeks of rehabilitation.
