Pep Guardiola is looking forward to continuing to work with Sergio Aguero after he agreed a contract extension at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero, City’s record goalscorer with 204, has signed for an extra year to commit himself to the club, with which he has won three Premier League titles, to 2021.
There have been times over the past two years when the Argentina international has not seemed to suit Guardiola’s style, but the City boss has recently praised the improvement in the 30-year-old’s all-round game.
They now both seem happy for the relationship to continue with Guardiola himself having also re-signed until 2021.
Should Aguero see through his contract, he will have spent a decade at the club since arriving from Atletico Madrid.
Guardiola said: “I didn’t convince him, he decided for himself. I thank him so much for the trust in us.
“Players like him, Vincent (Kompany), David (Silva), they decided because they show every day in training sessions, on the pitch off the pitch, their commitment to our club. I appreciate it a lot.
“I’m so happy he can extend his contract and stay 10 years in the club. I don’t know if he will finish his career here, I don’t what’s happening in three years, but it’s nice to count on him.”
