Aguero's promise to Man City

London - Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has vowed to stay at the club until they win the Champions League, several British newspapers reported on Saturday.

City appear destined for a third group-stage exit in four years after a dismal 2-1 defeat at home to CSKA Moscow on Wednesday left them on the brink of elimination in Group E.

But 26-year-old frontman Aguero, who signed a new five-year contract during the close season, says he will not leave the Etihad Stadium until he has helped City secure a first Champions League triumph.

"Not only will I stay the four (remaining) years to make it eight here in total, I'll stay beyond that - until we win it," said the Argentina international, who is releasing an autobiography entitled 'Born to Rise'.

City will be eliminated if they fail to win their next group game at home to Bayern Munich and there is a winner in the meeting between CSKA and Roma, but Aguero refuses to give up hope.

"The Champions League group table is not where we want to be, and not what we would have expected," he said.

"But, despite all that, and despite playing four games and not picking up one single victory, with the two that remain we could still do enough to be able to put things right by qualifying if we win our two games.

"But none of the games have been the real City and I guess that if we don't turn it around in these last two games, you would consider it to be the worst Champions League campaign the club has had."
