Micah Richards: Determined to make Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad

The 25-year-old suffered serious knee and hamstring injuries last season, but he is now focusing on getting regular first-team games under head coach Manuel Pellegrini.

Richards has less than two years remaining on his current contract, but the right-back says he is enjoying life at the Etihad Stadium and is hoping to commit his long-term future to the club.

"I'm not leaving City. It's my club and I love it here. Ten more years - that's my aim," he told The Sun.

"I am back fit now and believe when I'm fit I am as good as anyone in the division playing that role."

And Richards is also aiming to break into Roy Hodgson's England World Cup squad, despite stiff competition from the likes of Kyle Walker, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

The City defender is determined to keep his hopes of going to Brazil next summer alive by making an impact at club level.

He said: "It's about keeping fit and getting some games in.

"I've felt I played well in the three games (he's played for City this season).

"Brazil would be nice. I've never been! I was supposed to go to a tournament there when I was younger but didn't make it."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
