Sergio Aguero still has a big role to play at the Etihad.
City’s all-time top goalscorer is leaving the club at the end of this season ending his 10-year spell with the Cityzens.
Aguero scored a crucial goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon which equalled City’s own Premier League record of 11 straight away wins at Selhurst Park.
Pep Guardiola believes that the Man City legend still has a significant role to play in the remainder of the season.
“He is an absolutely top legend, an extraordinary player,” Guardiola said.
“The most humble and nicest human being. It’s not easy to find, normally – the top quality players pretend to be …
“He was confident, could create difficult situations. When one guy is beloved the way he is by all our fans not just for scoring a thousand million goals, the people realise you can’t hire (that).
“That’s why, this season we took a difficult decision, especially because he was injured a year, and next season we need to make another step to maintain this level for a longer time.
“But what he has done for this club will remain forever. He will help us in the Champions League and Premier League, to finish it.
“It’s not easy to find a player like him with this amount of numbers and achievements, with his personality.”
