Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola described Sergio Aguero as “irreplaceable” ahead of the striker’s exit this summer.
On Monday, City confirmed that Aguero will be leaving the Etihad at the end of the season.
This ends a 10-year stint, which saw the Argentine become the club’s all-time top scorer.
“We are still two months ahead and today I saw the training session, how brilliant he was and his commitment,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.
“Sergio is irreplaceable. I could say that in terms of numbers he can be replaceable, it’s not easy when you see more than 360 games played and more than 250 goals, the number of titles.
“So he is the legend, the best striker that this club has ever had during this century through the years, but he is irreplaceable in the souls, in the hearts, in the minds of our fans, of our people, of the players who played alongside him. and all the managers who worked with him.
“He’s a fantastic person, a human being, and I’m pretty sure if his mind is still as aggressive as he is, he can extend his career longer and longer than maybe two or three or four or five years.
