Manager Pep Guardiola of Premier League club Manchester City has praised his attacker Sergio Agüero in the highest tones and highlighted his importance to the Skyblues.
“Replacing Agüero one day will be one of the most difficult tasks. It is irreplaceable. We have another outstanding attacker with Gabriel Jesus and maybe someone else will come, but if Sergio goes, he cannot be replaced,” Guardiola said at the press conference ahead of City’s league game at Wolverhampton Wanderers (8.45pm on LIVE TICKER).
Guardiola: Agüero’s goal against QPR was City’s most important moment
Guardiola, under whom Agüero is the first choice in the ManCity offensive, knows full well that the club owes a lot to Agüero. ‘The most important moment for the club was when Sergio scored this one goal against QPR. That would still be more important than a potential Champions League title and he was the decisive man at the time,” said the Catalan chief executive.
In the 2011–12 season, Agüero scored his colours on the final day of the season for a 3-2 home win over Queens Park Rangers. His goal in the post-match period was synonymous with the Premier League championship.
Guardiola: Agüero farewell to City? “He decides when”
“Sooner or later he will leave us, only he decides when that is,” said Guardiola, who has been on the sidelines since 2016.
