Sergio Aguero has revealed he is taking advice from Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini on how to be a better striker.
Mancini made over 500 appearances in Italian football, scoring more than 150 goals for Bologna, Sampdoria and Lazio in Serie 'A' during the 1990s.
And the City manager is now using his wisdom on the role of a striker to help Aguero get even better at his trade, as the 23-year-old gets settled into English football.
"Obviously the style of play here is different to Spanish football but I will adapt as quickly as possible and try to be fully focused during training sessions," Aguero told Uefa's Champions magazine.
"I can learn from Roberto Mancini's experience as a striker. He will be able to help me. I hope I can fulfil what he has taught me and show that on the pitch."
Aguero has so far scored six goals in four games for City, with the Argentine in irresistible form and looking almost unstoppable for the Eastlands club.
And in a show of strength in the side’s strike force, Aguero isn’t even City’s top scorer for the season so far, with Eden Dzeko currently on a tally of seven goals, including one against Manchester United in the FA Community Shield.
After drawing with Napoli at home last night in the Champions League group stages, City now prepare to face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday. The club’s next Champions League match will be in Germany, against Bayern Munich nine days later.
