Sergio Aguero 'lied' throughout his Premier League career and 'got away with it' according to Micah Richards

Sergio Aguero 'lied' throughout his Premier League career and 'got away with it' according to Micah Richards

Micah Richards has shared new insight into former teammate Sergio Aguero and how he got out of interviews.

Micah Richards once accused Sergio Aguero of "lying" throughout his entire Premier League career with Manchester City.

Richards played in the same City side as Aguero, assisting his first ever goal on his debut against Swansea.

The pair won the league in dramatic fashion courtesy of Aguero's last-gaps goal against QPR, but Richards has shared some fresh revelations about the Argentine.

Aguero spent a decade in English football with City, winning five Premier League titles and scoring 260 goals in all competitions.

He'll forever be a City and Premier League legend, but there is one thing the striker was never completely honest about.

Aguero refrained from doing interviews in the English language - only doing so after his final game for the club.

He did give one alongside Richards after a 3-1 win over West Ham but according to the Sky Sports pundit, he pretended he didn't speak English to get out of doing interviews.

That meant the likes of Richards, Joleon Lescott and James Milner had to do most of the media duties.

"This is the thing Gary - Aguero was lying," Richards said on the Rest is Football podcast.

Richards claimed that Aguero spoke perfect English. (

"When they were asking him to do interviews, he was saying ‘I don’t speak English’. But he spoke brilliant English.

“He knew exactly what the slang terms were, all the terminologies, and of course, speaking with your friends and having an interview is two entirely different things, but he just played on that so much.

“He got away with it. Muggins like me, James Milner, Joleon Lescott, all the English lads had to do the media because Kun just said he didn’t speak no English.”

Aguero had a short stint with Barcelona after leaving City but was forced to retire after doctors uncovered an irregular heartbeat after he suffered chest pains in a game against Alaves.

He called time on his career aged 33 but the former Atletico Madrid man is set for an emotional return to the pitch.

Aguero is to participate in an all-star friendly fixture at Inter Miami's DRK PNK Stadium alongside Gonzalo Higuain and Ronaldinho.
