Cape Town - Manchester
City striker Sergio Aguero is pleased that new manager Pep Guardiola's
style of coaching has not restricted his natural way of playing.
Aguero has excelled in the Premier Devision despite it's reputation for tactical discipline and strong defences.
The Argentine says that it's different at the Etihad since Guardiola
joined and that even in his national team set-up he is forced to play
higher up the pitch to create more space for attacking midfielders.
"He (Guardiola) wants me right as a nine, but then he gives me more
freedom too. He asks me to move all around the attack," Aguero told Ole website.
"On the other hand, Tata (Martino, ex-Argentina boss) wanted me
between the two defenders, to create more space for Leo (Messi), Fideo
(Di Maria) or Pastore or Banega. Pep is different.
"Pep is very picky about everything. It's good. The good thing is
that I'm getting used to him and automatically going straight in to
pressing the centre-backs."
Aguero has an outstanding record of 107 Premier League goals in 154 games since joining the club in 2011.
