Aston Villa teammates can earn outcast Richards staggering double-your-money pay-rise

Aston Villa teammates can earn Micah Richards a staggering double-your-money pay-rise this season.

The Daily Mail says he is set to double his pay packet to £70,000 a week if Aston Villa get promoted - despite not playing for 500 days.

The former Manchester City defender and Premier League winner last featured for Steve Bruce's side on October 15, 2016.

Richards can expect his pay packet to revert straight back to original Premier League levels should Villa, currently third in the Championship, return to the top flight at the second time of asking.

Richards, 29, saw his earnings slashed in half following the Villa Park side's drop.
