Man City's Bianchi missing Corradi

Manchester City defender Micah Richards admits Italian striker Rolando Bianchi is missing the company of former teammate Bernardo Corradi.

Richards, in his column for BBC Sport, said: "Roland is so composed in training. He has a great touch and great technique - a typical Italian really.

"He was a bit louder when Bernardo Corradi was here and has quietened down since he joined Parma on loan.

"He still mingles with the rest of the players but he was a bit disappointed when Corradi left because they used to go out for dinner and spend a lot of time together."
