‘What a legend’, ‘Miss you’ – Man City fans react as Aguero puts record straight over relationship with Guardiola


Sergio Aguero has played down any issues between him and his former Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Aguero left City in the summer after a hugely successful ten seasons that saw him become the club’s all-time record goalscorer. City decided against renewing his contract, and Aguero was able to sign for Barcelona on a free transfer.

The Argentine struggled for game time in his final year at the club, mostly due to injury, but a number of omissions as he neared a return led to an increase in reports of a rift between him and Guardiola.

However, Aguero has insisted he accepted Guardiola’s rotation policy, and said he never questioned his manager’s selection decisions.

He told El Pais: “I never had problems with Guardiola. I never argued with him.

“We did have to clarify things. When he arrived, as we did not know each other, we had a bit of a trial run. The last three years have been fantastic. Nothing to say.

“He is a coach who always wants the maximum. If he has a party idea in his head, he does it.

“He does not care if he has to leave out the team that had scored three goals in the last games. The name of the player does not matter. Unless it’s Messi.

“I always accepted when I had to play and when not. Gabriel Jesus, as soon as he landed in Manchester, began to play as a starter. I said nothing.”

These Aguero’s comment has prompt Plenty of Sky Blues to react on social media.
