Aguero: City not Barca copycats

Published Add your comment

Sergio Aguero has cooled suggestions that Manchester City can match the feats of European champions Barcelona

City have been in quite sensational form so far this season, taking maximum points from their opening four games, and netting 15 times in the process.

Aguero himself has been heavily involved in the goalscoring department, with the 23-year-old having chalked up six goals in only four appearances for City.

But, says the Argentina international, there is no point comparing Roberto Mancini's side to Barcelona, with City still a side in their fledgling years as a potentially dominant force.

"Barcelona are a team that have played together for a lot of years in the same style and they have great players, but we also have good players with ability on the ball," the former Atletico Madrid striker told The Sun.

"Nasri and myself have only come to City this season, but there are players, like David Silva, who were here before who have a similar style and way of thinking which allows us to keep the ball, to try to dominate possession.


"It's so important in modern football to have the ability to be comfortable and have quality on the ball and we have it.

"We move it quickly and that's vital, but we're not thinking about Barcelona. We're thinking about ourselves really and trying to develop our own style of play with our own players and do the things Roberto Mancini wants us to do.

"And we are feeling good because we're creating a lot of chances and scoring a lot of goals in our own style and it's one we want to develop, to improve."
