Manchester City's Micah Richards apologised for his woeful penalty attempt in the pre-season shoot-out defeat to Olympiakos last night.

The 26 year-old will be looking to make more of an impact this season after spending most of the last campaign on the sideline, but has done himself few favours after blasting over after the game that finished 2-2 after 90 minutes in America.

The defender blazed the ball over the bar, and possibly the stadium, and was the butt of many jokes online following the penalty fail.

Richards posted an apology on his own Twitter account and insisted he had been going well in training when practicing from the spot.

“Been taking pens all week in training and slotting but today!!!!!! Oh my oh my…I apologise,” he said.

Here is the video of that spectacular miss.
