Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has warned opposition defenders that Sergio Aguero can get even better.

The Argentine international has wreaked havoc against Barclays Premier League opposition this term, scoring 11 goals in 14 appearances this season following his big-money move from Atletico Madrid.

Aguero was on the score-sheet once again over the weekend, opening the scoring in a 5-1 win over Norwich, and Kompany is in no doubt that the 23-year-old will get even better.

"If you look at what has happened naturally for all the strikers here, we have only seen the best of Mario (Balotelli) this year, and only seen the best of Edin (Dzeko) this year," said Kompany.

"It's the same with David Silva, so it might be next year that we see the real Sergio. Maybe he has got another level on him.

"That's a great prospect for us, that players like Samir (Nasri), Sergio and Gael (Clichy), who are in their first year at this club and even though they have been performing exceptionally well, all still have another level to go to.

"That's the great thing about this team."

Aguero's ability to adapt to life in England has been another factor to impress the Belgian international at the Etihad Stadium.

Whilst the transition from La Liga to the English domestic league can be difficult for some, the diminutive former Independiente starlet has had no issues adapting, and Kompany appreciates the effort being made by the player to adapt to life in Manchester.

"Sergio makes a massive effort to come to terms with the language and it's great to see when a player makes that effort," added Kompany.

"English is the language everyone understands and it makes things so much easier for the team.

"Sergio is not only a great player - he's also a great guy."
