Aguero’s superb career

Sergio Aguero joined Manchester City back in 2011, leaving Spanish powerhouse Atletico Madrid for a fee believed to be around £36m.

The Argentine hitman has now spent nearly nine years honing his craft at the Etihad.

And it is fair to say that Aguero’s exploits during his Man City stint have cemented him as one of the top strikers in Premier League history.

In total, the now 31-year-old has racked up 368 appearances across all competitions for the Citizens.

In those 368 ties, Aguero has scored 254, assisted 72, and won a plethora of trophies.

The moment for which Aguero will likely be most remembered, though, was his last-minute winner for Man City versus QPR in 2012, which won the Sky Blues their first-ever Premier League title.

Aguero names players he looked up to

Aguero, over the last decade or so, will no doubt have inspired a host of young footballers.

But in a recent interview, the centre-forward has been discussing some of his own inspirations.

Unsurprisingly, Aguero named a number of his countrymen as players he looked up to, one of whom came in the form of Carlos Tevez, who played with Aguero at Man City for a couple of years.

Aguero also revealed that he was a fan of former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen:

“When I was very very young I used to focus a lot on [Javier] Saviola that used to play for River Plate.

“Later I focused on Tevez, [Juan Roman] Riquelme, then Ronaldo from Brazil.

“I also liked Michael Owen. Mainly, I used to focus on the players that I liked and tried to play like they did. When I was young, obviously.” As quoted by the Mirror.
