Micah Richards’ Incredible Reaction To Manchester City's Goal Is Best Thing You’ll Watch Today

Micah Richards’ Incredible Reaction To Manchester City's Goal Is Best Thing You’ll Watch Today

Micah Richards scared Jamie Carragher and entertained the rest of us with his amazing reaction when Manchester City scored against Paris Saint-Germain.

The exuberant pundit and former City defender has been a hit with fans thanks to his irrepressible nature and it was on full display in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

City fell behind early via a Marquinhos header but came out in the second half a different side and grabbed a vital away goal when Kevin De Bruyne's cross flew into the net. Richards leapt out of his chair when the equaliser went in, running around screaming and causing former Liverpool legend to flinch in his seat.

If the goal to make it 1-1 caused this much reaction, we can only imagine what Richards got up to when Riyad Mahrez made it 2-1 on the night to give City a massive advantage going into the second leg in Manchester.

Richards was on analysis duties for CBS, so his reaction was strictly in studio rather than instantly broadcast to the watching world at the time of the goal.

The 32-year-old has already built up a couple of excellent partnerships early in his punditry career. Football fans have loved his exchanges with acerbic Manchester United great Roy Keane on Sky Sports, but Richards has formed an equally amusing bond with Carragher on Champions League nights.

The ex-Liverpool player, a winner of this competition in 2005, has teased Richards about his own lack of success in this competition. So Micah is clearly willing his former team to victory in 2021.

If Pep Guardiola's side made the final - as they are now favourites to do - and go on to win the competition, we're genuinely intrigued as to what Richards' ear-splitting reaction might be.

At the very least, it may be time for Carra to invest in some world-class earplugs just in case.
