Man City defender Richards: Milner worth every penny

Micah Richards insists new Manchester City teammate James Milner is worth every penny.

At £23million, Milner did not come cheap.

But Richards is certain the 24-year-old will prove to be an astute piece of business by Roberto Mancini.

"James has brought a new dimension to the team," said the defender, who is still claiming City's second on Monday, convinced Carlos Tevez never got a touch to the header from Milner's corner.

"When he first came people said he was overpriced. They said all he does is work hard.

"Now they know has a little bit more in his locker than that.

"He can use his right foot and left foot and has plenty of skill.

"His awareness is superb, so hopefully he can improve and bring that to the rest of the team."
