Manchester City defender Micah Richards was delighted to spend his summer break as Premier League champion.

Sergio Aguero's last-gasp goal in the season finale against QPR ensured the title would end at the Etihad Stadium and it is a day Richards will not forget in a hurry.

"To be honest, it ended the hard way," he said. "Being a Manchester City man, I know it always seems to happen like that.

"I am delighted with the way it ended. There were good performances throughout the season and if you look at the results I think we deserved to win it in the end.

"We stayed in the top two throughout the whole season and to be able to win it was outstanding."
