Richards makes recruits call

09 Oct 2008 - 11:54:28

Manchester City defender Micah Richards has urged the club's hierarchy to spend in the January transfer window to bring much-needed depth to the Citizens squad.

The 20-year-old England international believes that City's positive start to the new season is being hampered by a lack of numbers, with Mark Hughes' side having lost their last two Premier League games.

Richards told the Manchester Evening News: "I think what's killing us at the moment is the fact that there are a lot of games.

"A lot of people are starting to get tired already because they're not used to this many matches.

"It's why you need a big squad and we're starting to build that, so I hope we'll be all right.

"Becoming the richest club overnight is a good feeling, but money doesn't automatically bring success.

"You've got to make sure you've got the right mix in your squad and I hope we can do that this season.

"Maybe we can get some more players in January and that will allow us to make a big push."
