Ten goals in eleven games ever since Jesus Gabriel got injured and Sergio Aguero got his place in the starting lineup back. That’s a lot of goals for the Argentine, but his manager seems even more impressed by other aspects of his play.
He is more involved in the game. My feeling before was that he was just waiting to score a goal. Now he’s involved in the game. Not just the defensive part, where he’s helped us a lot, but he is doing all he can do in our process to create chances
the Manchester City manager said in a Press conference, adding
that’s why there are no complaints about what he has done after the injury for Gabriel Jesus
As for how his relationship with his Argentine star has been all these months at the Etihad Stadium, the Catalan had nothing but positive comments on Aguero’s behaviour.
It was always good, from the beginning, it was always good. No complaints. Maybe now he understands better what we’re looking for. He’s trying and that is what I want. When he misses chances, always you can improve, but we’ve no complaints
Guardiola said. Despite Aguero‘s return to good form, it remains unclear where he will be playing next season, with the Argentine looking unwilling to have to spend another year fighting with a 20-year-old (Jesus Gabriel) over a spot in the starting lineup.
