Micah Richards is known for his cheeky sense of humour on Sky Sports.
But it seems he’s never off the clock, as Rio Ferdinand discovered after posting a video interview he conducted with young Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood.
In the interview Ferdinand quizzes the striker on everything from who he looked up to as an aspiring footballer to his relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
And while former Manchester City defender Richards found the interview “fantastic”, he also couldn’t help but notice a “perfectly placed photo” in the background of Ferdinand’s screen.
The image shows a topless Ferdinand flexing his muscles, and appears to have been strategically placed just in shot by the former United centre-back.
“Accidentally on purpose,” wrote Richards in response to the photo. “Ain’t fooling me.”
Richards recently teased his co-pundit on Sky Sports Roy Keane after the Irishman created an Instagram account.
“I can confirm it’s the real @officialkeane16,” wrote Richards. “He was told nobody will agree to make our road trip series unless he’s on @instagram so here he is!
“You can also expect behind the scenes footage of my kit man duties when he gets a job again. #roykeane #skysports”.
Keane has uploaded three photos to Instagram so far including a throwback picture of him at Nottingham Forest and a snap of himself and his grandson.
