Manchester City can confirm that Micah Richards has had an operation on damaged cartilage in his right knee.
The injury is a recurrence of the one that prevented him from playing against Sheffield United and Derby County earlier this year.
The 20-year-old travelled to London with club physiotherapist Ally Beattie for surgery today, and he will be out for a matter of weeks.
Club doctor Mark Whitaker said, “The operation has been successful, and Micah will begin a rehabilitation programme at Carrington starting tomorrow. The medical team will monitor his progress over the coming days and weeks.”
