Man City's Richards fires warning at Neville

Manchester City defender Micah Richards has warned Manchester United fullback Gary Neville he'll never get his England shirt.

Richards has performed superbly for England at right-back throughout Neville's injury problems.

Neville, 32, is now on his way back to fitness having not played since March.

But while Richards has the utmost respect for Neville he does not believe he should lose his England place.

Richards, 19, said: "I have got seven caps now and I think I have performed well in all seven games.

"It is up to the manager who he wants to pick and I will respect his decision.

"Gary is a legend. He gets a bit of stick but you cannot dispute what he has done.

"But I hope that when he is fit I do get back in."
