- Match Analysis
Sergio Aguero joined Manchester City from Atlectico Madrid back in 2011 for a reported £38 million fee, signing a 5 year contract. He has been an integral part of the team since joining them, winning three Premier League titles and is their record scorer with 205 goals.
The Argentina International was one of the stand out players last season, scoring 21 Premier League goals and helped the club to win the title after reaching impressive 100 points for the campaign.
However, the striker was linked with an exit before the transfer deadline as he and Pep Guardiola did not appear to have a positive relationship at the club, with young Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus often preferred up front.
The 30 year old year decided to stay and signed a one year contract extension on Friday, extending his contract until the summer of 2021.
Aguero has admitted that his relationship with Guardiola and he was a major factor behind his decision to sign contract extension.
“I can say I have learned a lot, especially with getting to know [Guardiola] better,” he said as quoted by Goal.
“Obviously, at the start you don’t know each other but as time goes by you get to know him. And this was part of the reason for extending my contract.
“Every player would like to work with Pep to learn lots of things.”
The Spaniard also revealed that their relationship is positive and was sure that he would stay with the club.
“The relationship [with Aguero] was always top, was perfect, and I’m delighted he can continue playing here,” said Guardiola.
