After spending a while on the sidelines the Blues are ready to welcome back their Argentine striker against Birmingham.

Manchester City

manager, Pep Guardiola, is ready to welcome their all-time top scorer,

Sergio Aguero

, back to the team after revealing the player to be in a great spirit. The Spaniard admitted that the player will join them for their upcoming FA Cup clash with

Birmingham City

after recovering from his meniscus surgery.

Since the absence of Aguero, the goal and winning average for Man-City has dropped drastically, but with his return

Guardiola

hopes everything will change for the better.

"Just look at the numbers, the quality he has in the box, Sergio is unique,"

Guardiola said.

"He has a tough, tough injury. The important thing is his mood is exceptional, I would say better than ever.”

"It's important that the feeling, the last two weeks, his knee's reaction was really good after training. This is the best news we can have.”

"He’s going to start, the minutes his performance level or knee will dictate. What's important is good quality minutes, as much as possible, we start from the beginning and after we'll see what happens.”

"It will be great to have Sergio fit. He’s so optimistic. He says 'I will score goals' and that is the most important thing."

Guardiola also talked about their Brazilian player,

Fernandinho

, whose contract ends by the end of the season, saying:

"With the players in this part of the season, everything is open. I am more than impressed with the first captain role of Fernandinho, he is leading in an exceptional way. In the good moments and the bad, bad moments.”

"If everyone can take an example of what he has done so far, the team will be stronger."

When asked about Fernandinho’s way of addressing his teammates, Guardiola replied:

"How he talks with his mates, how he talks with my assistant coach, before the game, at half-time.”

"Not just talking to players about football matters, in life, how to behave in training, every single day. He's the first who proves that he's able to do it. That's why he goes to Old Trafford, plays holding midfielder there. It was not easy for Bruno Fernandes to control him.”

"At the beginning of the season he stepped forward and showed how to be a captain."
