‘Sergio is one of the best strikers in the world’ – Guardiola praises Aguero after Huddersfield hat-trick.
The Etihad boss believes that his striker is playing much better since recovering from the injury which hampered his 2017-18 season.
Sergio Aguero is looming as an indispensable figure in Manchester City’s title defence, with Pep Guardiola praising the forward “perfect” conditioning.
The Argentina star continued his sparkling early season form with a classy hat-trick in the 6-1 thumping of Huddersfield Town on Sunday.
It was his ninth treble in the English Premier League – a tally second only to Alan Shearer – and came just a fortnight after a decisive brace in the Community Shield win over Chelsea.
The former Atletico Madrid man partnered Gabriel Jesus in attack to fine effect on Sunday, the Brazi forward grabbing a goal of his own amid the carnage.
Aguero insists he is not concerned about losing his place should Guardiola revert back to a lone central striker, telling Sky: “I have to train hard, and then it is the decision of the manager.
“When I play, I have to be the best.”
