"It's true, there was someone from Leeds there". I talked to Lampard and he told me I didn't respect fair play.

With Lampard leading a session on Thursday in the build up to the game, the Twitter account for Derbyshire Constabulary's Response Unit confirmed a man had been found by the perimeter fence of Derby's training ground.

The former Argentina manager also revealed that he had already spoken to Derby counterpart Frank Lampard about the situation. "The responsibility of this is me, I am responsible, there is some precision that I need to give".

Frank Lampard's men are set to face Championship leaders Leeds on Friday night, with the Rams looking to increase the gap between themselves and Nottingham Forest in seventh. "This is not unlawful, we've done it publicly, we talk about it in the press, for some people it's the wrong thing to do - for others it's not".

Lampard called the incident "bad", telling Sky prior to the match that "if we are going to start talking about 'culturally I did it somewhere else and it was fine, ' then that doesn't work for me". It has disrupted our build-up for this game. People will stand here and say I'm trying to make excuses before the game, I will speak like this after the game as well, win, lose or draw because of what's happened'.

Manager Frank Lampard stopped training until the incident had been resolved.

I don't care if it's cultural.

Derby are now eight points behind Leeds ahead of Friday night's match, and lost the corresponding fixture at the start of the season 4-1 at Pride Park.

"If I'm lucky enough to do well and travel to another country I'll find out what the etiquette is in that country and abide by that". Police had to come to the training ground, so that was disruptive. How you prepare the team is vitally important and we haven't been able to do that on Friday. The man was asked to leave but it wasn't followed up like it was this time'.

"If somebody wants to say that is not relevant, then if tactics aren't relevant, that means Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, Jurgen Klopp, all the great managers, are just lucky".

Who was the "spy" outside Derby's training ground? It's up to the league to see how they deal with it.
