I would rather not see him again :)

I feel similar so imagine my horror when I switched on tv last night to see him sitting there on rednapps team on James cordens a league of their own - even worse he was billed as Aston Villa star :(

I understand the disdain for Richards but why are you hating on rednapp and corden?

Depends on who you the other 2 are. 1 I can definitely agree with.

People won't want to hear this but I have read and heard a few reports that he is absolutely brilliant with the young players, helping them come through and settle with the first team squad. That he's essentially a £25k a week coach at this stage. And that his injuries have basically finished him, just not quite enough for a compo pay out. 

Dumpster fire of a situation I know, but at least we're putting him to some use?

well if you see the videos and him in it, the other players do seem to love him and his attitude. 

though injured or not his football was awful here and I be surprised if plays for us again

That is fair enough if this indeed the case and good to know he is offering something to the cause and not just stealing a wage in effect.

Shame about his injuries at such a stage in his career.

Shouldn't be registered as a football player at the club though. You know, what with him not playing football, and being incapable of convincing anyone he can partake in the sport, seems weird to fork out a weekly fortune based on a contract that specifically states he is an able athlete that can actively take part in the sport. 

Micah Richards is registered with the club as a footballer, not a nice guy. I would be looking to sue him for every penny he hasn't wasted away and getting his name distanced from the club, not continuing to pay him because of his ability to hold conversations with younger players.  or smile in front of cameras

Is he only on £25K per week? Signing as a free agent I assumed he would be on £60k + per week, unless he had a relegation clause in his contract of course?

On what grounds could the club sue him. If you were no longer able to fulfil your role at work for reasons out of your control you would either be offered a new role or agree a compensation package. 

The club probably feel it's more value to keep him around as a unofficial coach then pay him off. I can't see how that is Richards fault. Do you expect him to just walk away?

Certain he's on at least £50k a week.

Where have you heard them? I'd be interested in reading them if available.

Him interacting with young players is something I think could go one way or the other. It's conceivable their motivation could be affected seeing this waster have a great time coasting through life on the good ship Aston Villa.

Obviously he was always a terrible player after the age of 19 so there's no benefit to him being a traditional coach.

Not on that sort of money since we were relegated as there was a relegation clause on his contract

If that's the case mutually terminate his current contract and take him on as a coach and help him earn his badges. Benefits both (Just he'll be earning a whole lot less)

This is probably why that law career didn't work out for you.

"Hey Micah."

"Yes Boss?"

"Do you know that £6m you are still to pick up between now and next year?

"Yes Boss?"

"Do you still want that money?"

"Nah Boss. You're alright."

There are two separate sources. One is a Birmingham Mail article which if you Google 'Micah Richards' is the first article to come up I believe. I then spoke to somebody involved with the club on a corporate level who informed me in passing that this is indeed accurate.

It's not really ITK knowledge and feel free to disregard it, but it makes sense given that he's still heavily involved in the club's PR, particularly as he hasn't kicked a ball for the first team in over a year. 

No, it isn't worth £25k a week or whatever he's actually on. But I don't believe, or at least there's no solid evidence, that he's shirking his responsibility intentionally. Otherwise I'm confident he would have been McCormacked. 

On top of that we gave him the contract. It's on us ultimately.

Yeah - I read that about him as well.  Still a shit signing, but it's a small amount of glitter that the turd is rolled in if he's helping out behind the scenes.
