Micah Richards Showed Off His Italian On CBS Sports, Jamie Carragher Turned American Again

Micah Richards showed off his Italian during an appearance on CBS Sports' coverage of the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The stateside broadcaster's informal content style has been a breath of air, with the pundits able to be themselves and have fun while dissecting the action in the greatest club competition in the world.

Former Manchester City and England defender Richards, with his infectious personality and trademark laugh, fits in perfectly.


And his most recent appearance, Richards showed he's a man of many talents when he casually dropped some Italian phrases.

Richards spent a season on loan at Fiorentina in the 2014/15 campaign, playing 19 times and linking up with the likes of Mo Salah.

He rattled through some Tuscan and Italian phrases upon the request of Matteo Bonetti, who is CBS' lead Serie A analyst.

He described Richards' Italian as "pretty legitimate" and then gave him a grade C - not too shabby considering the 33-year-old was only there briefly.

"It’s alright," he commented on live link.

"He was only there for one season so you can’t expect too much.

"There were a few phrases and he was showing off in the break. He introduced himself pretty well. So it’s a C."

Earlier on, Jamie Carragher was being American yet again and even if only for a few seconds, it was absolutely brilliant.

The staunch scouser had Alex Scott and Thierry Henry in stitches a couple of weeks back when he did a Thanksgiving speech in an American accent for the first time.
