Speaking about Ryan Mason as he previewed last week's match at his home-town Sunderland, the legendary midfielder told us that was more to come from from his fellow midfielder. "He's a goalscorer, for a start," said Micky.
Micky was proved right as well. A couple of days later, Ryan broke into the box to score the winner at the Stadium of Light.
Ryan is a player Micky knows well. Turn the clock back 15 years, and Ryan used to attend Micky's Soccer Schools!
"I remember Ryan as a six or seven-year-old," said Micky, who lifted the FA Cup and UEFA Cup in his two spells at the club.
"In many ways he's followed the same path as I did all those years ago as he's graduated through the youth system and into the first team.
"He's now an important part of the team, he's confident and playing well and as I said, there is so much more to come from him as well. He can certainly score more goals breaking into the box.
"I must say, I'm always proud as punch when I watch him play."
