"We have still two months ahead, and today I saw the training session how brilliant he was and his commitment,"

Guardiola commented.



has kindly praised Aguero who has accomplished four Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and five League Cups in his 10 years of service.

"Sergio is irreplaceable. I could say in terms of numbers he can be replaceable, it's not easy when you see more than 360 games played and more than 250 goals, the amount of titles...

"So it's the legend, the best striker this club has ever had for this century through the years, but is irreplaceable in the souls, in the hearts, in the minds of our fans, of our people, of the players that played alongside him and all the managers who worked with him."

Guardiola accepts that the Argentina international assisted to establish a powerful team in English and European football and has supported him to make headlines for City before his departure.

"I think he still has interesting goals to score this season,"

he continued.

"Unfortunately, he was out for one year. People won't believe this because we have had success, but we missed him in some moments."

Gabriel Jesus believes that his City teammate, Aguero is the most excellent player in the team's history.

Ilkay Gundogan says he gets goosebumps watching Aguero's last-gasp winner against QPR in 2012 which secured the Premier League title.

"We were so lucky, the guys who came after him - me as a manager for example. We took over the club and he was one of the guys like Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, David Silva, many players helped this club make a step forward and of course he was one of them.

"Without them, what we achieved in the past four or five years would not be possible, that's for sure."
