Argentina legend Diego Maradona believes that Sergio Aguero could not have chosen a more perfect destination to progress his footballing career than at Manchester City, after the Argentinian made the move to the club at the end of July.

Aguero was a big coup for City, with numerous clubs around Europe desperate to get their hands on the prolific striker. And within four games, the 23-year-old already has six goals on the board in his English football career.

And Maradona, whose daughter is married to Aguero, believes the £35 million move has made the perfect progression as the striker continues to get better for club and country.

“I said Agüero needed a team that would support him, so that Agüero can play in the Champions League and can play in very important championships,” he said.


“People at Atlético Madrid said I was a fool but I told them [maybe I’m not that] much of a fool. Agüero is playing in a team at Manchester City where he is going to fight for everything.

“It was not fair, with respect to his team-mates at Atlético Madrid, for Agüero to be playing for a team who were not competing for the big championships.

"It was worrying me that he may have played for many years for Atlético Madrid and for that time they would only have one star, and didn’t do much in Europe. Now El Kun is playing at a place he deserves.”

Manchester City have qualified for the Champions League this season for the first time after beating Tottenham Hotspur to fourth last season.

The Etihad Stadium club face Napoli on Wednesday night in their first group stage match.
