Sergio Aguero casts Man City future into serious doubt after Swansea snub

Share
Gabriel Jesus has already admitted to farting on a Man City team mate

"There are 19 year-olds who are physically strong and some who aren't". Meant to be a backup for Aguero, along with fellow backup Kelechi Iheanacho, Jesus has quickly gotten used to English soccer.

Gabriel Jesus has made an immediate impression at Manchester City by surprisingly dislodging star striker Sergio Aguero from the starting line-up.

Obviously, this is a great problem to have if you are Guardiola. In these last three months that are left I have to help the club and, as I say, the club will decide if I have a place here or not.

Sergio Aguero is widely recognised as one of the best strikers in the footballing world.

Meanwhile, City will play Bournemouth at 8am next Tuesday in the Premier League. Being benched for two - and potentially a few more - matches should be the inspiration Aguero needs. I have to help the team as much as I can in these three months. "We lost two points in the last match at home and had three consecutive draws, so we needed the points", said United manager Jose Mourinho.

"I will work hard for the remaining three months and then we'll see if the club wants me", he told reporters after Sunday's win.

"I think we can all see and get the feeling that there is something very positive happening and we just have to build on that".

Both players finished the game, with Aguero coming on in the 83rd minute shortly after Gylfi Sigurdsson's equaliser and Guardiola said the two attackers are able to play together.

Los Blancos have been linked with a staggering £75 million summer swoop for the player, something Manchester City would happily agree to, considering the age and current squad status of the Argentine.

City sources have indicated that despite Aguero's claim he has been left in the dark about his future, they are intent on keeping him at the club.

However, his late salvo only papered over the cracks of an uneven performance.

And when Sigurdsson equalised with a low drive with less than 10 minutes to go, it looked like being another afternoon of disappointment for Pep, the groans growing ever louder as the game ticked into stoppage time.

"He has this instinct inside the area and this joy he has brought us", Guardiola said in praise of Gabriel Jesus.

Aguero is City's top scorer this season with 18, 11 more than Raheem Sterling, who is next on the list. You saw when he came on against Swansea, he played really well.
