Guardiola doesn’t mind Aguero remaining in the Premier League

Sat 10 April 2021 | 9:03

As the Manchester City icon is to leave the club this summer as a free agent, the striker has been linked to several clubs, Chelsea.

However, Pep Guardiola insists he wants whatever is best for Sergio Aguero, who has helped the club win four Premier League titles during his spell.

“The best for him, we wish – all of us,” Guardiola said when asked if he'd be concerned by Aguero staying in the Premier League.

“Find the best for Sergio for the last years in his career, for sure. We’ll be delighted with the decision he takes, the best for him and his family and his career. My preference is his preference. His preference is my preference. The best for him is the best for us.”

Currently 14 points clear at top of the Premier League, the Citizens have a 2-1 advantage against Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League quarter-final tie.

While Aguero has only scored three goals in 15 games this season, Guardiola hopes he still has a part to play this season.

"Everything can happen,” Guardiola said. “I’m sorry, I’m not a person who can see far away for more than one week. In football, I learned from my period as a player and a manager that everything can change quickly in a positive way or a not positive way. Everyone must be ready and, hopefully, Sergio can be ready quick.

“Sergio is a lovely person with specific qualities and skills. I understand him, I know him and I understand he needs time to get in the best condition. I said last week after we announced [his departure] the way he trained, and in the Leicester game, which was so difficult because they defend so deep and so tight, for the strikers it is not easy, he moved well and helped us. He felt something in his leg [so] he was substituted. He is doing better.”
