The Red Devils struck twice during the closing stages of the match against Blackburn Rovers to remain on course for a 20th league title and Richards admits he felt like crying after watching Antonio Valencia’s cross-cum-shot fly into the net.

“At half-time and at 60 minutes, I thought: ‘You never know’, but United do always look like they will score,” he told the Daily Mail.

“So I knew it was going to come.

“But when they got it and went further clear of us, I actually wanted to cry and I haven’t done that or felt like that in years.

“Football is full of emotions. You get angry and happy but I have never wanted to cry before. This time I did as that’s how much it means.

“I have been grafting so hard this season, we have played unbelievable football and to see United come like this is horrendous. It kills me.”

However, Richards is full of praise for Manchester United and admits that the champions have done brilliantly to recover from that 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City earlier this season.

“(Sir Alex Ferguson) Fergie has got to be one of the best managers that I’ve ever come across because, if we had got beaten 6-1 that day, United would have been 20 points clear by now,” he added.
