REVEALED: Aguero's priceless response to Man City fining him for being late

Frank Lampard has lifted the lid on the Argentine's occasionally tardy appearances at training and how he told the coaching staff he would score them a hat-trick in the next game

Frank Lampard has revealed Sergio Aguero would often pick up fines for turning up late for training and that he didn't care about the punishments.

The Argentine has developed into one of the best strikers in the Premier League since moving to City from Atletico Madrid back in 2011, scoring 112 league goals in that period.

But it appears the 28-year-old does let his standards slip when it comes to arriving on time for training, with Lampard insisting he would often be fined by the club for being late.

He told Sky Sports: "At Chelsea I can't remember [who picked up the most fines for being late to training] but I will jump to Manchester City.

"Aguero picked up a fair few. He just didn't care. He was so laid back and would just stroll out to the training pitch like five minutes late.

"'[The coaches would say] right you're fined' and he would say 'okay, no problem. Wait until the weekend and I'll score a hat-trick and everyone will be happy'."

Lampard also revealed that Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti were the best coaches he played under, with current Chelsea defender John Terry agreeing.

"Jose's sessions when he first came to Chelsea were such an eye opener for all of us because he was so forward thinking and it was all the ball but before that it was about running," Lampard said.

"With Jose it was ball work from the start of the season. I used to love training under Ancelotti as he was such a good people person. He made you feel good every day. They were the two standout managers on that front."

Terry added: "I would say the same. Mourinho for the technical sessions and the flow of it. It kind of went one into another and it would kind of progress.

"It was like an hour of work but you wouldn't rest in that hour. He does it all and controls everything. He gets his staff to feed the balls in and if one of them puts a dodgy ball in he will go mad. He'll stop the session and go mad at his staff.

"He raised the whole thing because of the levels he wants from everyone."
