Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola, is praising striker, Kun Aguero, after a brace in a win against Swansea.
Aguero returned after serving a suspension for elbowing a player to compete on Saturday. He scored twice in the game, leading his team to a three to one victory. Aguero has now scored 11 goals in six games in the current campaign and has 28 goals in his last 27 English Premier League matches.
Guardiola praised the Argentine striker for his efforts but also clarified that he expected further sterling play from his front man.
“[Aguero] knows I want more and he can play better. That is what I want and what we want, but we are so happy,” said Guardiola after the match. “The first goal was fantastic. The striker needs to score goals and he did it.”
“The best striker is Lionel Messi, he scores 50 or 60 goals per season. He is the best, but I am so happy for Sergio,” replied Guardiola when asked if his player was the best striker on the planet.
Aguero scored nine minutes into the game but teammates could not help him with scoring throughout the game. Guardiola praised his team for its play but also expected further improvement from the group as a whole.
“We played very good,” said Guardiola. “It was the best performance with the ball. We didn’t create chances, we created almost chances and we missed the last pass. We arrived many times with Kevin [De Bruyne], David [Silva], and [Ilkay] Gundogan attacking the central defenders and we missed that pass.”
