Spurs boss claims Manchester City star world’s best striker

Samir Nasri & Sergio Aguero with Premier League Trophy

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has impressed Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has labelled Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero as the best striker in the world.

The Spurs manager was speaking ahead of his side’s clash with the Citizens on Saturday and decided to sing the praises of his Argentine compatriot.

Aguero has become renowned as one of the deadliest strikers in the Premier League since City shelled out a hefty sum for the former Atletico Madrid star in 2011.

In his first season at the Etihad, the 26-year-old became a hero and wrote his name into the club’s history books by scoring the winning goal against QPR in the 95th minute which won them the title.

Since that day, a surplus of goals have continued to flow effortlessly prompting Pochettino to call him the number one striker in the world.

“When he plays it is like classical music in my head. It is unbelievable. I think he is the best striker in the world. For me, he is. I love Aguero,” he said, quoted by the Mirror.

“It’s like Mozart. Seriously. It is positive. Not Beethoven. Beethoven is too crazy. We need to make it difficult for him, to make the game difficult, to avoid the possibilities of him scoring.

“For me, Aguero is the best. Messi is not a striker striker, Ronaldo is not a striker striker, but Aguero is a striker. For me, he is the best. Everything you have to have as a striker, he has.”

Since arriving in Manchester, Aguero has netted an outstanding 81 goals in 131 appearances in all competitions for the club.

The 5ft 8inch striker has netted five Premier League goals against Spurs in five appearances, more than any other current club in the English top flight.
