Micah Richards to miss Wembley semi-final

30th March 2011 - Berko Tau

Manchester City defender Micah Richards will miss up to six weeks of football games with a hamstring injury.

The full-back suffered the injury playing for the England Under-21's against Denmark last week and a scan has confirmed a grade two tear to the muscle.

Richards will now be out for four to six weeks, which means he will not be available for the club's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United on April 16th.

The player said he was distraught at not being able to make the game at Wembley.

Richards said: "It is not what I wanted to hear at all. I felt sick when I was told.

"All I can do now is concentrate on getting back as quickly as possible. I must admit I did think 'why me?' for a while when I heard the news."

City football manager Roberto Mancini will also be without German defender Jerome Boateng for the game against their Manchester rivals, after it was revealed the player needs surgery on a knee complaint.
