It was a memorable day for Sergio Aguero as he became the all time (joint) leading goalscorer for Manchester City.
Two Argentinian players for Pep GUARDIOLA’s Manchester City on Saturday meant two Argentinian goalscorers. Both Sergio AGUERO and Nicolas OTAMENDI (who also made Argentina’s latest squad) were in the starting eleven and scored in City’s 3-0 win against Burnley. AGUERO’s record tying goal was a penalty kick, a well placed shot into the bottom corner of the goal. Kun had previously missed 5 of his last 14 penalty kicks for City. With his goal, AGUERO became City’s joint all time leading goalscorer along with club legend Eric BROOK, as both stand on 177 goals.
Nicolas OTAMENDI scored the second goal of the match, a towering, thunderous header into the corner of the goal.
Speaking on Manchester City’s official website, coach Pep GUARDIOLA had this to say about Sergio AGUERO’s milestone performance:
Manchester City coach GUARDIOLA on AGUERO
“He was out for three games. He played minutes today and maybe he will on Tuesday. It was important for him to equal the record as soon as possible. When he breaks it, it will be something special.
“He should pay a tribute to us! He should invite us to dinner maybe! One more goal… it’s going to happen sooner or later. It is so important for him and the Club. We are so happy to be in this moment with him”
