Micah Richards has admitted that he almost missed the start of Sky Sports' Monday Night Football coverage after he found himself trapped inside his own dressing room for an hour and a half.
Behind the scenes footage hilariously showed an exasperated and very relieved Richards race into the studio as co-hosts David Jones and Jamie Carragher laughed at the former defender, just minutes before the trio were set to go live on Sky Sports.
Richards has revealed that it was the on-set staff who helped him reach his chair just in the nick of time, allowing him to analyse Manchester City's clash with Wolves at the Etihad in its entirety.

A day after his close shave,
: 'Loved being on Sky Sports last night,
Loved being on @SkySportsPL last night, but managed to get myself locked in the changing room for 90 mins before the show! Thanks to the staff for getting me out with 2 mins to spare - you’d never have known 😎! @Carra23 & @DavidJonesSky were bricking doing the show without me 😂 pic.twitter.com/GqPtV7RY9R— Micah Richards (@MicahRichards) September 22, 2020
