Aguero the next 'Maradona or Messi’

Roberto Martinez believes that Sergio Aguero is close to being as good as Diego Maradona or Lionel Messi, as the Wigan manager prepares his side to face Manchester City this weekend.

While Aguero was outshone by Edin Dzeko last match when City defeated Tottenham 5-1 at White Hart Lane, the Argentina international has scored three goals in three games, despite only just moving to England.

Barclays Premier League sides will quiver at the idea of having to travel to Eastlands to face City at the moment, with their prolific strikers and fantastic start to the season, and this weekend it’s Wigan’s job to try and stop the seemingly unstoppable.

“He really is the complete player and he’s probably as close to Maradona and Messi as you will see,” Martinez said of Aguero.


“[He] has the ability to play between lines and his winning mentality has allowed him to fit into the Premier League with no problems.

“He is explosive over the first five yards and defenders in this country will have a real shock when they see just how quick he is.

“Due to his style, City can play on the counter away from home and then be different at home - it really is a dangerous combination.”

With Carlos Tevez set to make a return in earnest after his future at the club was shored up on deadline day, competition for forward positions will be all the more difficult, and City fans will be drooling at the prospect of Tevez, Aguero, Dzeko, David Silva, and Samir Nasri all competing for places.
