Micah Richards landed himself a six-month driving ban this month and in doing so became the third Manchester City player to do so in April, reports The Guardian.

The 24-year-old was handed the ban after failing to pay two speeding notices and was caught driving at 51mph in a 40mph zone in Manchester last September. Richards already had nine points on his licence resulting from three separate offences in November 2010, December 2012 and earlier this January. The six points he obtained this time around pushed him over the 12 point limit and therefore disqualified him from taking to the road.

Futhermore, Richards did not attend the hearing and was ordered to pay a£745 in surcharges.

French midfielder, Samir Nasri was the first to be landed with a six-month ban this month after he admitted to three counts of failing to provide the identity of the driver of his car that was caught speeding back in 2011 and Carlos Tevez soon joined him with a six-month ban of his own after he was caught driving without insurance.

Tevez was also ordered to perform 250 hours of community service in addition to being banned for the road.

There must be a clamber for car pooling at City with the rate at which their squad are earning these bans.
