Hart: Aguero "Useless" in Practice Sessions

Sergio Aguero, Manchester City’s four-goal hero against Tottenham on Saturday, is apparently “useless” at times during the club’s practice sessions, goalkeeper Joe Hart tells ESPN. The Argentine, who became City’s record goalscorer in the Premier League this weekend, has scored 61 goals in 95 league appearances for City, which means he averages a goal every 108.3 minutes—a better goals-per-minutes ratio than the likes of Thierry Henry (121.8) and Ruud van Nistelrooy (128.2), according to sports data firm Opta.

"[Aguero] is one of those players -- and I don't think he will be unhappy with me saying it -- that some days you look at him in training and he is useless!” Hart said. "That is just down to him, and you know that when it comes to games he is going to score, because he is that talented, that good a player. He is a big-match player and deserves to be at a big club like this, scoring goals for these fans, and I can't be positive enough about him. He deserves all the plaudits he gets.”
