Former Manchester City right-back Micah Richards has revealed Vincent Kompany was the headmaster of fines the club tried to avoid.

Chelsea made headlines recently due to the club boss Frank Lampards financial punishments for being late for the team meetings and training.

Richards, being one of the key figures in Manchester City’s Premier League title win in 2012, finds similarities in the Chelsea case and the way Kompany kept everyone in order at the club.

He told BBC 5 Live: “You know Kompany, he’s busy he just looks like that person anyway and he always kept track of the fines and because I was vice-captain and one of the leaders in the dressing room he’d tell me to take charge. But I’m not going to tell the manager a player was late or didn’t put his bib in the wash so it was only if Kompany caught you, so the lads were avoiding him. He was like a schoolteacher, headmaster, one of those guys who when you see him you just turned the other way. I tried to be friends with everyone.”
