Former Manchester City defender Richard Dunne says he would not put Sergio Aguero behind anybody and believes he is the greatest striker in Premier League history.
, City's record goalscorer with 257 goals, has announced that he will leaveManchester City
at the end of this season.
The 32-year-old Argentine, considered to be one of the greatest players in Premier League history, joined fromAtletico Madrid
in 2011 and went on to win four Premier League titles, one FA Cup, and five League Cups.
Aguero is on top of Dunne’s all-time list of Premier League strikers for his remarkable consistency.
"I don't think you'd ever put him behind anybody," the former City defender told Stats Perform News.
"I think the way that he plays, all the strikers we speak about historically have scored a lot of goals, all different types of players.
"I certainly wouldn't put Aguero behind any of them, I think he's a player who could have played in any team, in any era or generation.
"It all comes down to who's your favorite, who's your preferred sort of striker. There's plenty who will say Aguero is the best – his goalscoring ratio is fantastic.
"He's been a bit unfortunate, because he tended to miss little periods of every season, but always managed to get over the 20 goals.
"He was someone that you could just rely on massively. Someone who when you'd go into a big game, and you need the goals, he's a name that you would go, he's starting because he's just incredible."
