Micah and his Manchester City teammates got the pre-season preparations under way last week, returning to training before flying off to South Africa for the first-leg of their tour.

In their opening fixture, City succumbed to a 2-0 loss to Supersport, with Micah playing the first-half and new manager Manuel Pellegrini making wholesale changes at the break to give as many players as possible a run-out.

Their next game in the Nelson Mandela Football Invitational will pit them against AmaZulu on Thursday, before the squad fly to Asia for the Barclays Asia Trophy.

Meanwhile, Micah and Joleon Lescott have renewed their friendly rivalry, with each recording a behind-the-scenes video diary of their pre-season tour. Watch Micah’s first instalment.
