Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is praising manager Pep Guardiola, saying that he will score even more goals with the Spaniard in charge.
Aguero, 28, netted a hat-trick in City’s 4-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday to open up Champions League play. The Argentine international has scored nine goals in five matches, and is crediting Guardiola for helping him develop his play.
“I’m really happy with the new manager,” Aguero said. “He is one of the managers that have helped me most in my career, I’ve improved my game near the box and scoring goals, with Guardiola I will score more goals.”
Aguero also stated that City are looking to make have another strong showing in the Champions League. Last season they made it to the semifinals before falling 1-0 on aggregate to Real Madrid.
“Obviously the Champions League is not easy, but our objective is to try to get where we got last season – the semifinal. There is a process first but we have to keep going this way and hopefully we can get much further. We have great players and a great team and we can do it
“I still have three more years here. I hope to achieve that [winning the tournament] at some point as it’s really important for any player. Obviously the Champions League is not easy, there are a lot of fantastic teams as well. But my idea and club’s idea is the same: to try to win this competition.”
Aguero finished last season with 29 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions.
