Aguero keen to learn more from Mancini

Have your say

Manchester CITY star Sergio Aguero believes he has a fine mentor in manager Roberto Mancini.

The Argentina forward has delivered an instant return on Mancini’s club record £38 million outlay, scoring six times in just four appearances since his summer arrival from Atletico Madrid.

But the 23-year-old feels he still has much to learn and Mancini, a striker capped 36 times by Italy during a playing career which took in Sampdoria and Lazio, could be the perfect guide.

Aguero said: “Obviously the style of play here is different to Spanish football but I will adapt as quickly as possible and try to be fully focused during training sessions. I can learn from Roberto Mancini’s experience as a striker. He will be able to help me. I hope I can fulfil what he has taught me and show that on the pitch.”

Aguero is likely to get his next opportunity to impress as City make their eagerly- anticipated Champions League bow at home to Serie A side Napoli tonight.

Midfielders Gareth Barry and James Milner are both doubtful and were due to be assessed today.
