I might be a Man City legend but I wish I’d played for Jurgen Klopp



Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has added extra spice to the title race by admitting he would have loved to play under Jurgen Klopp.


Sergio Aguero believes Manchester City can beat Arsenal this weekend and take a huge step towards the Premier League title, but has handed huge praise to another rival by claiming he would have loved to play under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.


Aguero is City’s record goalscorer and has a statue outside the Etihad. He scored some crucial goals against Liverpool and Klopp during his glittering 10-year spell with the Blues, helping them become the dominant force in English football. Now, with City battling both Liverpool and Arsenal for the title in a three-horse title race, Aguero has heaped plenty of praise on rival manager Klopp.


With Klopp leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, Aguero believes his departure will be a huge loss to the Premier League, going as far as admitting that he would love to have played under the German.


He told Stake: “Terrific manager, Klopp has certainly elevated Liverpool, allowing them to become a protagonist of the Premier League in recent years. He’s made them more aggressive, more intense in their playing style. New players have arrived and Jurgen has managed to adapt them to this offensive mentality.


“He’ll be sorely missed in the Premier League… but he’s made his choice, and it’s up to us to respect it. Any great manager will teach you many valuable things. It would have been a great experience for sure [to play under Klopp.”

Looking ahead to City’s clash with Arsenal, Aguero backed his old side to strike a blow over the Gunners, even if the game won’t decide whether either team wins or loses the title.


“I’m ranking it one of the top encounters of the season, no doubt,” he said. “That being said, this year we have not two but three contenders for the title, and they all have challenging fixtures. I’m confident in City’s victory but it won’t be a decisive match – other games will also tilt the scales.”
