‘Aguero knows ball’, ‘Foden will become a wonder’ – Man City fans react as Aguero sends Pep Guardiola message


Sergio Aguero has urged Pep Guardiola to use Phil Foden more after seeing his ‘favourite’ Manchester City player change the game against Atletico Madrid this week.

Foden reminded Guardiola of his precocious talent with a stunning cameo to inspire City to a late 1-0 win in the quarter final, first leg. Foden went on as a substitute and produced a moment of brilliance to set-up the winning goal for Kevin De Bruyne.

After being forced to retire late last year, Aguero can regularly be seen on his Twitch stream, where he will often discuss football matters alongside his gaming. This week, the Argentine reflected on City’s win over Atletico as he questioned the ‘issue’ stopping Guardiola from playing Foden more.

“As always, my favourite player changed the game: Phil Foden,” Aguero said on TyC. “I don’t know what the issue is like, but Pep, put him on the pitch a little more. Now that I don’t play anymore, I can say it!

“The kid tears it up, I told you. One day you asked me who I liked and I told you Foden.”

It remains to be seen if Guardiola starts Foden against Liverpool on Sunday, when the bitter rivals clash in a game that will decide who goes on to become Premier League champions.

These Aguero’s comments were shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
