Manchester City’s Micah Richards, managed to give the club’s marketing team a fright after convincing them he’d picked up another injury during a photoshoot.

The 25-year-old has only just recovered from a hamstring injury which has kept him out of action for the entire season.

Those fearing for their jobs were City photographer, Sharon Latham and senior partnership marketing manager, Jane Farquhar.
