Sergio Aguero and Roberto Mancini reunited at Salt Bae's restaurant in Dubai

Don't you just hate it when you're out at a restaurant and your old boss shows up?

Actually, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero didn't seem so bothered when he bumped into Roberto Mancini on a visit to celebrity chef Salt Bae's restaurant in Dubai.

The Argentina striker has been in Abu Dhabi with the City squad for warm weather training ahead of the final months of the season and headed to neighbouring Dubai for some fancy dinner.

Turkish chef Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gokce, has become famous for his flamboyant way of salting his meat, which has been copied by many footballers in their goal celebrations -- including Aguero in training.

And the 29-year-old posted a picture on Instagram adopting the pose along with the chef and ex-City boss Mancini before adding a video of himself eating steak off the end of a knife.

Mancini, now in charge at Russian club Zenit St Petersburg, and Aguero were together for more than three years at the Etihad, winning the FA Cup -- City's first trophy in 35 years -- and the 2011-12 Premier League title with his famous 94th minute goal on the final day of the season.

Aguero returned to a snowy Manchester on Saturday and will remain in the city for Argentina's friendly with Italy at the Etihad on Friday night.
