Sergio Aguero has revealed he was first drawn to the Barclays Premier League by watching Michael Owen in his Liverpool pomp.

The Argentine striker finally fulfilled his ambition of moving to England during the summer after signing for Manchester City from Atletico Madrid in a club record £38 million deal.

Aguero has quickly established himself as one of the finest strikers currently plying their trade on these shores, with eight goals in four league outings for City so far.

And the 24-year-old says that, during his formative years, he would always follow Owen as he lead the Liverpool attack.

“I watched the Premier League on television,” explained Aguero.

“I prefer it to La Liga and Serie A.


“I loved Michael Owen. I always followed him at Liverpool. That’s why I started watching the Premier League.

“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.”

Owen scored 158 goals in 297 games for Liverpool prior to leaving Anfield for the Santiago Bernabeu in 2005.

The 31-year-old has since joined Liverpool's arch-rivals Manchester United, and has netted 11 times in his last 12 starts for the Red Devils.
