Pep: Aguero is quality, but I can still help him improve

Pep Guardiola has again hailed Manchester City’s “quality” striker Sergio Aguero after his brace helped them to a 3-1 victory over Swansea on Saturday.

Guardiola’s side extended their perfect start to the Premier League season – now six wins out of six – with a win over the Swans, thanks to two goals from Aguero and a late third from Raheem Sterling.

The Spaniard was particularly impressed with Aguero’s movement in the box but reckons he can still help the Argentina international improve his game.

“Sergio (Aguero) is quality. His first step, second step in the box is so good and that is why he is one of the best strikers in the world but I want to help him improve his game,” said Guardiola.

Guardiola thinks his side needed to improve their penetration in the final third but was pleased overall with his side’s performance.

“Today we played very good, but we missed a lot of final passes and that happened a lot of times in the first half,” Guardiola added.

“You have to win the ball, use the ball and use the counter attack. It is the first time we have been at 1-1 at half-time and we spoke of how we had to be like a team and in the second half we played really well.”

On Kevin de Bruyne, who was withdrawn in the 82nd-minute, Guardiola continued: “I don’t know (how he is), I think he is injured, that’s why we have to have a big squad as everyone will help us.”
