Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has only played 30 minutes in the Barclays Premier League, but the Argentine already believes he has the power to change the shape of English football, and take City to their first league title in 43 years.
Aguero signed for Manchester City at the end of July for a reported fee of £38 million. The transfer price was a record for City, and their money looked to be well spent when the 23-year-old came off the bench against Swansea on Monday night and scored twice.
And Aguero certainly isn’t short on confidence, believing that he can take both the club and the league to new heights this season.
"This is a chance for me to change the league," Aguero said.
"This is a team with a lot of quality. I know it's a competitive league but we're here to win it in the end.
"I have just played for a few minutes, but it was great to get my first goal and the one at the end.
"Now I want to keep it going."
Fans and pundits alike have shown concern for City should Carlos Tevez leave before the transfer window closes, but after Aguero’s
performance on Monday, it’s expected the club will be looking to base their playing style around the former Atletico Madrid man. And Aguero
said that while he believes there's a great depth in the squad, he admitted to always looking up to Tevez.
"This is a team with a lot of quality," Aguero said.
“[Tevez is] my hero, my role model, my reference point. It was all about Tevez when I was in my formative stages as a footballer.
"I thought he was great. I wanted to watch him because we played in more or less the same position.
"Carlos likes to struggle and to fight - and I wanted to be like that too."
