Sergio Aguero has revealed how Pep Guardiola has affected his game at Manchester City.
“Pep asked me to try a new way of playing and I had to adapt. It wasn’t easy but I had no choice,” Aguero said as part of a new book about the Spaniard, ‘Pep’s City: The Making of a Superteam’.
“My game is totally different now from what I was doing five years ago at City. A total transformation. At that meal, we talked about loads of things.
“We kept postponing it and then when we finally met up, we talked about work for 20 minutes or so. The rest of the meal we spent chatting about other stuff, family, life in general.”
When Pep arrived I was a bit taken aback by his intensity, it wasn’t always easy to understand what he wanted,” he added.
“With Pep, it can feel like he’s putting a lot of pressure on you. You start thinking, “I’ve got to play well” and only end up putting even more pressure on yourself.
“But I understood pretty quickly that’s just how he is. Pep is super intense. He won’t leave you alone for a second. There are no off days.”
