Richards becomes third Manchester City player to get driving ban this month

Micah Richards has become the third Manchester City player to receive a six-month driving ban...this month.

The England international was disqualifed after he failed to respond to two speeding notices sent to his home address.

He admitted to two counts of failing to provide the identity of who was driving his Ferrari 458 Italia car which was clocked at 51mph in a 40mph zone in Manchester in September.

The 24-year-old Blues defender who did not attend, was also ordered to pay a £600 fine, £85 costs and £60 victim surcharge.

The court was told Richards had difficulties with his post at the time the notices were sent out last September and last November because his home in Bowdon, Altrincham, was being renovated and he was staying elsewhere.

Last week, team-mate Carlos Tevez, 29, was disqualifed from driving for six months and told to perform 250 hours of community service after he admitted driving while banned and without insurance.

City midfielder Samir Nasri, 25, also received a six-month ban last week after he admitted to three charges of failing to provide police with the identity of the driver of his car which was clocked speeding over four months inee 2011.
