Digital Sports Group Head of Operations Matthew Tait believes that the recent domination on the field, courtesy of the star studded Manchester City line up has seen key player's, such as Micah Richards' Facebook page increase dramatically, with the total weekly reach increasing by over 20%.
The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester City defender since it's launch and is becoming more and more popular with each week that passes, with a rapidly growing community of fans keen to hear all the latest news on their favourite player. The official PFA Facebook page along with Micah Richards player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
Micah Richards has played for Manchester City from 2001, making his first team debut in 2005. A powerful right back, he was the youngest defender ever to be called up to the England squad, Richards has gone on to make 13 appearances for his country.
Micah has only managed a few limited appearances this season, due to injury against Swansea City. However, having been rumoured he would face up to 12-16 weeks out of action, the Manchester City star could be back in action just a month after his injury, Roberto Mancini confirmed. Although it is never good take have a key player miss a month of football in the highly competitive Premier League and Champions league alike, fans on Micah will be relieved the star could be back at the start of next month, at the latest.
Having captained the Great Britain Olympics football squad and current Manchester City vice-captain, Roberto Mancini see's the right back as a potential successor to Vincent Kompany. Last season – no defender earned more assists than Micah, who is willing to throw his body on the line in order for his beloved Manchester City to win.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Micah Richards really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Manchester City this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Micah.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
