Hughes - 'Richards going nowhere'

"Micah's not going anywhere in January or at any time. He's a big part of what we're trying to do here."

"He's still a very young man, and his football experience is great for someone of so few years. People sometimes don't give him enough credit for what he's achieved up to this point in his career.

"But he knows he's nowhere near the finished article. There's a huge amount of potential still to be tapped in to. It's down to me and it's down to my coaches to bring that out of him."

"His physical attributes lend themselves to so many positions on the field of play. We have to make sure that he's training and playing correctly and learning every day. Without a shadow of a doubt, he'll grow and develop as an outstanding player."

Despite the fact I have been one of Micah's hardest critics I never really wanted him out of City but definitely want Micah out of the first 11.

I am just not convinced he can make it at right-back, definitely not centre-back either.

He definitely has what it takes to become a great winger, if Micah can Emulate The Sweep, loose a bit of weight and develop his scoring touch I think he would have a great future but Micah just does not have the concentration for defending.

If he can reproduce his form in defence that got him into the full England setup I will eat my words.

Bit of a surprise for today - he's back in the starting line up.
