Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated star striker Sergio Aguero must earn a new contract if he is to stay at the club.
The Argentine, who returned to league action on Saturday against Arsenal, has spent the last four months recovering from injury and is now in the final year of his contract. But the Catalan boss says Aguero needs to be able to prove his fitness and form over the coming months.
“The important thing is that Sergio comes back in good physical condition, starts to get his rhythm, doesn’t get more injuries and plays good,” said Guardiola. “We know what he means for us, we know how we appreciate him, but now he has to show like every one of us, me first, that we deserve to continue here and playing good and winning games.”
Aguero has been a key figure in the blues success since joining the club in 2011, when he scored two and set up another on his debut against Swansea, and the striker went on to win the league for the club by scoring a last minute winner in the final game of the season at home to Queens Park Rangers.
Aguero has gone on to score over 250 goals for the blues, cementing his legend status at the club, and all City fans agree it will be a sad day in Manchester when he finally leaves the blues.
