The Argentine has been outstanding in Richards‚Äô right-back role for Manchester City and the England defender wishes it was him playing.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve watched the lads this season and obviously Zaba has been playing at right-back and he‚Äôs been my Player of the Season so far,‚ÄĚ said Richards.
‚ÄúZaba‚Äôs been incredible and he deserves all the plaudits he‚Äôs been getting. But I can‚Äôt help thinking I wish it was me.
‚ÄúLast season, both Zaba and me were playing well so we tended to chop and change and both of us had runs in the team."
