Richards proud to wear Man City captain's armband

Micah Richards was pleased to wear the captain's armband for Manchester City's defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The England defender told City's website: "It's nice to be named as captain, but I would rather the team have won.

"It was nice of the Manager to do that, but he could have picked anyone out of that 11. He knows that I give 100% in every game.

"Obviously it was a very proud moment for me, but it was a shame we lost in the way that we did."
