Aguero moves into ‘legendary’ ranks

Sergio Aguero is close to becoming Manchester City’s greatest goal scorer of all time, and in the shortest time.

Sergio Aguero is close to toppling

Aguero fired three goals yesterday when City thrashed Watford 6-0, and helped Per Guardiola’s men on top of the Premiership with 13 points in just 5 games played. Yesterday’s was the sixth hat-trick for the Argentine since joining City in 2011.

Guardiola praised Aguero, after the striker moved within three goals of the club’s all-time record.

“Hopefully that [the record] will happen very soon, and we can have a big celebration,” said Guardiola.

Ex-England winger Eric Brook, who was at City from 1928-1940, scored his goals in 494 appearances. Aguero has scored his goals in 259 games.

Guardiola added: “He’s a legend, and it’s a part of history in the club. Aguero’s numbers speak for themselves – he is amazing,”

With five goals under his belt this season so far, Aguero’s fantastic form makes him a favourite contender for this year’s English Premiership’s Golden Boot. Ex-Newcastle star Allan Shearer has challenged him to score 30 goals this season.
