Sergio Aguero always knew that Argentina hero Julian Alvarez, who is setting the World Cup alight would end up becoming a superstar.
The Manchester City striker has often been likened to Aguero, due to his busy style of play, stocky build and signature spider celebration.
While many wondered whether the former River Plate fan favourite would be ready to be at the level required by Pep Guardiola, he has instantly done the business for both club and country.
Sergio Aguero has always been a Julian Alvarez fan
Speaking on his Twitch stream once, Sergio Aguero lauded Julian Alvarez before he even played a game for Manchester City, saying, “I get along with him.”
“When we were in the Argentina national team, we s**t with laughter. He always asked me things and I, as a striker told him about my experience.”
“He is very good, really good. I like him. We have to see what position they [Manchester City] are going to use him [in].”
“I do not know if he is going to play as a nine. For me, he is a player who has to play more freely, he is restless.”
The Aguero stamp of approval was always a sign that City signed a gem in the Argentina striker
The fact that one of the greatest strikers of all time and perhaps the best player in Manchester City history, Sergio Aguero was always such a fan of Julian Alvarez, both on and off the pitch must be music to every Sky Blues fans’ hears.
Ultimately, the retired goalscorer knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a smash success at the highest level to say the least.
The fact that the club’s all-time top scorer knew Alvarez had what it takes to make an impact is a sign that City have signed a diamond in the rough, and that too at a bargain £14.1 million fee.
