Micah Richards is not Mr Bling
Micah Richards has sprung to the defence of Micah Richards amid accusations that fame and fortune has gone to his head. The 100 per cent focused professional has released a statement on his official website (which is becoming a decent source of OTP content, by the way!) in which he reaffirmed that all his bling has not distracted him from his football.
Under a caption reading ‘Micah defends himself’ (Citeh fans might argue that’s the only thing he has defended so far this season), the 20-year-old said: “It’s hard reading stories suggesting that I’ve forgotten where I came from and have become ‘Mr Big Time’, because it’s not true. I have bought a house and cars, but I think everybody would do the same in my position, and it doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about the friends, family and places that have helped me to become what I am today.”
“I’m encouraged to also pursue some of my other passions when I have free time, and I think it’s important for me to do that at this stage in my career as I handle all the other bits that come with being a footballer,” he added.
The mind boggles.
