As Sergio Aguero grows older who has been a mainstay of Manchester City on the front lines, young Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus boasted that he would replace the former Atletico Madrid role sooner or later. Regarding the words of Gabriel, then how the response of coach Pep Guardiola?
Sergio Aguero, 32, joined Manchester City in the 2011 summer transfer window. So far he has recorded no less than 244 goals in all competitions, with that number, the official Argentine player became the club’s all-time top scorer. During strengthening City, Aguero scored many important goals for the club. One of them is a goal against QPR which bear the Premier League title in the 2011/12 season.
In fact, even though the player is no longer young, coach Pep Guardiola still relies heavily on the front lines. Evidently, Aguero is still very reliable, he has scored 13 goals in 17 appearances in the Premier League. But of course, sooner or later Aguero will experience a decline in performance and leave the club.
This is what makes young Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus brag about being able to replace Aguero. Especially now that the Argentine star contract at Etihad has only 18 months left. However, coach Pep Guardiola said that it would be very difficult to find a replacement for Aguero at the club.
So far, Aguero is a very important figure for Manchester City, he is irreplaceable, and his goal against QPR which led City to win the first Premier League title is more important than four Premier League titles.
“Becoming a successor Aguero will be one of the toughest tasks. Sergio is irreplaceable. We have another great striker at Gabriel and maybe another one will come when Sergio leaves, but he is irreplaceable. ”
“The most important moment of this club – more important when the club is expected to win the Champions League – is when Sergio scored against QPR. That moment is far better than four titles in a season or whatever and he is the man,” said Guardiola was reported by Goal International.
