Sergio Agüero's legacy in England already has an expiration date for Saturday May 29 in the Champions League final. But first, Manchester City must face the final date of the Premier League against Everton at home and Kun will have an emotional farewell to their fans at the Etihad Stadium. Josep Guardiola, coach of the English team, took advantage of the press conference prior to the duel and praised the Argentine striker once again. 

The historic scorer will go free at the end of the season and the Spanish technical director isn't stranger, so for some time he has not stopped speaking positively about him. “He's a great person, funny and humble. He's a legend of the club being Argentine and he scored many goals during many years in this league that's so difficult. I can't even imagine when he would have scored more if he had more luck with injuries during these seasons ”, recognized the coach champion of the Premier League.

In addition, he admitted that indoors is one of the most appreciated by City workers: “He's very loved by the club's workers because he is a great person. And the quality of him as a player goes without saying because the numbers and performances of him being fit have been incredible. On Sunday in the last game, the 10,000 fans who are in the stadium will show all his love and gratitude for everything he has done for the club”.

During one of the praises, Pep dared to compare Sergio Agüero with a historical Brazilian striker. “Goals, titles, great games ... incredible! He's a player like Romario, he can define in five meters. He's like a lion in the jungle that devours rivals. He has that quality, but his great quality's his unique instinct in the face of goal. The one of him last so much of him against Crystal Palace controls, takes two or three steps and defines with a lot of speed. There he demonstrated all his ability. I've always said it, he can play until he's 35, 40 or 45 years old and will continue to score goals ”, explained Guardiola.

In closing, he noted: “He will depend a lot on whether he is physically well. When he is in good condition he can do whatever he wants ”. Kun would have everything agreed to sign for two seasons with Barcelona and fulfill his dream of sharing a team at the club level with his friend Lionel Messi. The official announcement would be made once he passes the Champions League final that faces Manchester City and Chelsea in Portugal.
