Micah Richards

The England capped defender will be hoping to play at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur take on Fiorentina tomorrow night in the UEFA Europa League. The Florence-based side are heading to London to tackle Spurs at White Hart Lane.

For one man it is a very important game, as he is heading back to England to take on some old rivals. England capped Micah Richards is currently on loan at Fiorentina from Manchester City.

He left City in the summer after a period of time out of the City first-team. He suffered serious injuries and a lack of first-team football during his final few years at the club.

The last time he played for City was in the Community Shield before the start of the season. His last appearance in the Premier League came way back in November of 2013.

Now he is in Italy but is clearly happy about the tie, Instagramming this afternoon:


Back to England for the game tmoz!

Since joining La Viola in the summer Richards has not cemented himself as a regular in Vincenzo Montella's side. The chances are he will be struggling to feature in the game against Spurs on Thursday.

But if he does you can bet he will soak up every moment of being back playing in a Premier League ground.
