Man City boss Hughes plays down Richards blow-up

After victory at Everton, Manchester City boss Mark Hughes played down reports of a big bust-up with defender Micah Richards.

"People seem to be making a big thing of the little exchange we had. These things happen time and time again at training grounds," he said after his side's 2-1 victory at Everton, only their second away win of the season.

"Our training ground is a little bit open and every day we have long-range lenses pointed in our direction.

"I didn't pay much attention to the incident at the time. It was something and nothing and it didn't affect Micah's performance, I thought he was excellent.

"If it had been a serious incident he wouldn't have played today so that shows you the strength of it."
