Sergio Aguero is to leave Manchester City at the end of his contract.
Former player Trevor Sinclair suggests on Twitter that Sergio Aguero’s decision to leave Manchester City and return to Argentina at the end of his contract must be respected by the supporters.
The Argentine international recently told a radio station back in his country that his plan is to leave City at the end of his contract in 2019, with a return to his first club Independiente on the cards.
“Here (at City) they know what I want to do, they know I want to return to Argentina. My family know that I am going to go there when my contract with Manchester City finishes in 2018,” Aguero was quoted as saying by the BBC.
The former Atletico Madrid man has scored 128 goals for City since joining the club in 2011, winning two league titles with the first coming via his unforgettable 94th minute winner against Queens Park Rangers.
Aguero has been nothing short of magnificent for City, and Sinclair feels his decision deserves respect.
The 27-year-old still has his best years ahead of him, and by the time he leaves City he will arguably be in the prime of his career which makes his recent announcement rather surprising.
That said, it isn’t uncommon for Argentine footballers to depart Europe for their home country while still having plenty to offer, with the latest example being fellow striker Carlos Tevez.
The Etihad Stadium has witnessed some fabulous players over the past few years, but arguably none have been as good as Aguero as he so often demonstrates exactly why he is the league’s number one striker.
