Pep Guardiola believes little credit should go.to him for Aguero’s goal scoring tenacity in the beginning of the season.
The Argentine netted a second consecutive hat trick in an European competition upon return from a domestic suspension.
The match was postponed due to bad weather, with a thunderstorm rolling through Manchester. Aguero notched in two goals before halftime, before completing his treble with 13 minutes left to go. Iheanacho replaced him and got his name on the score sheet.
However, as long as Aguero continues to contribute to his team’s relentless aggression without the ball, Guardiola believes the goals will take care of themselves.
“Sergio is good because he’s good,” he told a post-match news conference. “He was good with Manuel [Pellegrini], he is good with the national team, hopefully he is good with us.
“His talent in the box to score goals is natural; I can teach absolutely nothing.
“He has to know that behind him there is a team that is going to help him if he is going to help us. That is what I have to convince him.
“If he continues to help us in that way he is going to score a lot of goals, like Keli [Iheanacho], like all our strikers.”
