'Sorry Grealish, you've got to go' – Richards fumes at Man City ace for miss vs Leipzig & switches allegiance to Mbappe

MICAH RICHARDS was not happy with Jack Grealish's miss during Manchester City's Champions League defeat at RB Leipzig on Tuesday.

And the former Blues defender switched his allegiance to Paris Saint-Germain ace Kylian Mbappe as a result.

Richards was on pundit duty as City lost their final Group A game 2-1 in Germany.

He was sat in the studio with a Grealish scarf draped over one shoulder and an Mbappe one over the other.

And presenter Kate Abdo asked: "Where do your loyalties lie Micah?"

The popular pundit replied: "My loyalties lie with both if I'm being totally honest.

"But Grealish has done this in today's game…"

As Richards rearranged the Grealish scarf, viewers were shown the £100million signing from Aston Villa spurn a fairly straightforward chance after just 21 minutes with the score at 0-0.

The ball was laid off to the England man on his favoured left foot by Phil Foden but his effort on the turn flew over the crossbar.

And as the footage was being replayed, Richards can be heard saying: "You've got to bury that.

"A man of his caliber should be sticking that in the net.

"So that's on one hand… But on the other hand you've got Kylian who did this…"

The screen then cut to Mbappe converting a brilliant volley during Paris Saint-Germain's 4-1 win over Club Brugge.

And Richards – tossing the Grealish scarf to one side and twirling the Mbappe one around his head – said: "So sorry Jack… you've got to go. KYLIANNNNN!

"So today my loyalties are with Kylian."

Grealish has struggled for form since his mega-money move to the Etihad in the summer.

The winger also recently said he '100 per cent' wants to return to Aston Villa in the future.
