Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola has spoken up about the future of Sergio Aguero, maintaining that he is still a vital part of the team. The Spaniard rubbished reports making rounds that he has fallen out with the Argentine and has now found another replacement. Aguero was excluded from his UCL lineup against Barca last week but starred in Sunday’s draw against Southampton.

At a press conference, Guardiola said:

“I want to be clear again. I am so happy with Sergio and hopefully he can stay for a long time here. I want from deep in my heart he can stay here and play with us.

He is a special player, he is a striker who scores millions of goals in his career. I know for strikers it depends on the moment, but we cannot forget how many goals he scores for us.”
