Backup Sergio Aguero, Promise Pep Guardiola Questionable
Pep Guardiola promised to help Sergio Aguero break Manchester City’s record of goals and make a new record at Etihad. Currently, Aguero need three more goals to pass the record of Eric Brook (177 goals).
Aguero chance to get it when City entertain Crystal Palace who have not got points so far on Saturday (23/9). After last week he re-reserved against West Bromwich.
Guardiola who reserved Aguero for Gabriel Jesus last season insisted it was only a matter of time before the Argentine player became the club’s top scorer.
“It will happen,” Guardiola said. “He will get the record,” quoted from manchestereveningnews.co.uk (23/9).
“Secondly he should be proud and City should also be proud.”
“Playing long in one place and breaking the record is fantastic. I’ll try to help him get more goals. ”
Consistent until the end
Aguero’s performance has been extraordinary this season and has been the key to their special start in the Premier League, their record is exactly the same as Manchester United. However, Guardiola also reminded last season they won 10 games in a row at the start of the season, but ultimately difficulty.
“Last season we were pretty good, quite similar, but our points were lacking,” he said.
“It was a good season, but not good enough to fight with Tottenham and Chelsea.”
“Our only regret is that we did not fight until the end. In the Champions League and Premier League we did not fight until the end because we were not good. ”
After a fight against Crystal Palace, Manchester City will host Shaktar Donetsk in the Champions League on Thursday (27/9) and three days later they travel to Chelsea. (Source: manchestereveningnews.co.uk)
