Manchester City legend Francis Lee insists that Pep Guardiola has made Sergio Aguero a complete football player.

Sergio Aguero was at Manchester City long before Pep Guardiola. He was well on his way to breaking City’s goalscoring record before the Spaniard set foot in the Etihad Stadium.

City legend Lee insists Argentine Aguero was even a complete goal scorer before the former Barcelona man took over.

However, what Lee feels Guardiola has done, is make Aguero more than a goal scorer, he has made him a player.

Speaking to the club’s official website mancity.com, Lee credits Guardiola with completing Aguero.

He said:

“Sergio is simply remarkable.”

“When Pep Guardiola first came to the club, he was an out and out goalscorer but now he is an out and out player who scores goals.”

“Sergio has got everything.”

“He is a very good finisher, he is so clinical, he is the right size and build for a striker and he has got pace.”

Lee thought Guardiola’s arrival may have spelled the end for Aguero but the manager rejuvenated the player.

He added:

“I thought he was possibly a bit on the wane when Pep arrived.”

“But the manager shook him up and he has got him playing like a world-class striker he is.”

“If you look at the way he scores his goals they are not all simple.”

“He can also score exceptional goals and he’s an amazing talent.”

Check out the career stats, his numbers only got better once he partnered up with Pep.
