Guardiola hails Man City record goalscorer Sergio Aguero

Aguero missed Manchester City’s last three games with a knee injury but scored 10 minutes after coming off the bench at the Etihad last night.

Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero’s ‘instinct to score will always be there’ after the veteran striker returned from injury to register a goal against Marseille in the Champions League.

Aguero, 32, was unable to feature in the last three matches for the Cityzens due to a knee problem but he came off the bench to score the second goal after Ferran Torres’ opener last night.

Alvaro Gonzalez’s own-goal made it three-nil as the Premier League club secured a comfortable victory over the Ligue 1 side.

However, a delighted Guardiola lauded Aguero after scoring his 41st goal in Europe's elite competition. 

"His instinct to score will always be there," said Guardiola as BBC Sport quoted.

"He had three or four training sessions and the reaction was good. He played for 25 minutes and scored a goal."

Guardiola added: "I am really happy for the way we played in all the games without exception. 

"We scored goals, we conceded few.

"In general good in all the games, we are into the next round now and we'll see the incredible teams so it's an interesting draw. Hopefully, we arrive in a good shape, good mood and we will see."
