The Argentine striker Sergio Aguero gave an interview recently where he spoke about his teammate Lionel Messi, the Champions League, the Ballon d’Or, as well his experience at Manchester City and much more.

Even though being a prolific striker at the pitch, Aguero hasn’t won many trophies but obviously his memorable one will be the Champions League. The Premier League winner has spoken about his time playing both in England and Spain.

Speaking with TyC Sports, here’s what he talked about the Premier League:

“I GOT USED TO NOT HESITATING IN THE AREA. EVERYTHING HAS TO BE DONE FAST. YOU RECEIVE IT FROM BEHIND, YOU TRY TO TURN AROUND AND KICK IT. I AM LOOKING TO TRY AND SHOOT IT HIGH AND HARD SO THAT THE GOALKEEPER DOESN’T HAVE MUCH TIME TO REACT. YOU HAVE TO BE VERY PRECISE OR YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN EXTRA SECOND TO PLACE IT BUT IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE, MOST GOALS YOU HAVE LESS THAN A SECOND.”

Aguero also spoke how it is in Spain and England:

“IN SPAIN, EVERY TEAM TRIES TO PLAY AND YOU HAVE A LITTLE MORE SPACE. IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE, THERE PROBABLY ISN’T A LOT OF PLAY BUT IT’S MORE PHYSICAL. EXCEPT FOR THE TOP FOUR OR FIVE TEAMS, THE REST OF THE TEAMS PLAY VERY LITTLE AND JUMP TO DEFEND.

“IT’S COMPLICATED, EVEN MORE FOR ME BECAUSE CENTRAL DEFENDERS ARE AT LEAST 1.90 CM TALL. FOOTBALL HAS CHANGED A LOT AND TODAY, EVEN IN THE NATIONAL TEAM, YOU HAVE A NORMAL TEAM AND ONLY BY RUNNING THEY COMPLICATE THINGS. MAYBE YOU DON’T NEED THAT MUCH QUALITY BECAUSE IF YOU’RE PHYSICAL, YOU RUN AND YOU REALLY WANT IT, ANY TEAM CAN COMPLICATE THINGS FOR YOU.”

He also expressed about Lionel Messi and on his goals:

IF HE SCORES A GOAL AND I REALIZE THAT IT’S NOT WHAT HE WANTED TO DO, I’M CONFIDENT ENOUGH AND I TELL HIM “YOU DIDN’T WANT TO DO THAT” BECAUSE ONE REALIZES IT. THE THIRD GOAL (LIONEL MESSI SCORED FOR ARGENTINA VS. ECUADOR AT THE 2018 WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS), HE CHIPPED IT. I SAW THE REPLAY AND HE WANTED TO CHIP IT BUT I TOLD HIM “YOU WERE LUCKY. IT JUST WENT UP A BIT” AND HE TOLD ME “YOU KNOW, YES”.

He even spoke about Champions League and Ballon d’Or:

“EVERY PLAYER WANTS TO WIN THE BALLON D’OR BUT THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HAS A BIG INFLUENCE ON IT. MY BEST YEAR, LAST YEAR, WE WON FOUR TITLES BUT WE DIDN’T HAVE THE LUCK IN THAT TOURNAMENT. I WASN’T EVEN NOMINATED IN THE TOP 10 AND THAT’S BECAUSE I NEED TO DO MORE THERE (IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE).”

He expressed his views regarding the Argentina national team:

“THE FIRST THING IS TO FINISH THIS SEASON, GIVE EVERYTHING FOR THE UPCOMING COPA AMERICA AND AFTER THE WORLD CUP. IT WAS AT A GOOD TIME, WE WERE DOING WELL WITH SCALONI, WITH A GOOD TEAM. WE WERE ENTHUSIASTIC, ANXIOUS BECAUSE THERE’S THE CHANCE (OF THE COPA AMERICA) AND MORE THAT IT’S IN ARGENTINA.”

When he was asked whether he could be at the 2022 World Cup, he also said that he could get there “without any pains”.

He also spoke about the new players in the Argentina national team:

“THE BOYS ADAPTED QUICKLY. WE JOKED AROUND LAUGHING AND IT WENT WELL. AFTER THAT, YOU SAW THE FRIENDSHIP ON THE PITCH.”

He did mention how it feels when Argentina national team loses:

“THE FIRST ONE THEY CRITICIZE IS LEO (MESSI) BUT HE’S THE ONE THAT SUFFERS THE MOST. WE ALL SUFFER WHEN WE LOSE BUT FOOTBALL IS LIKE THAT.”

He also spoke regarding his future:

“FOR NOW, I’M NOT THINKING ABOUT WHAT I’LL DO. IN THAT REGARD, EVERY CLUB HAS PROBLEMS.”
