Following an influential debut display as a second half substitute in Manchester City’s 4-0 victory over Swansea last night, Sergio Aguero hopes he can continue to contribute positively to the cause of his new employers throughout the forthcoming season according to goal.com.
Aguero, who climbed off the bench around the hour mark at the Etihad Stadium to inspire City to victory with two goals and an assist, was understandably delighted with his Premier League debut.
“I am happy. The start was good and I want to keep it like this. It was nice. I had the chance to play a little bit and I enjoyed it. I helped the team and I want to keep doing the same in the future,” declared Aguero.

Argentine strike partnership possible.
Manchester City Chief Executive Gary Cook is growing increasingly optimistic that Carlos Tevez will remain at the Etihad Stadium beyond this summer’s transfer window to strike up an exciting partnership with his fellow Argentine International Sergio Aguero, ESPN has reported.
Whilst Tevez was reportedly close to securing a return to his former club Corinthians earlier this summer amid speculation he wanted away from City for personal reasons, this prospective move could not be completed before the close of the Brazilian side’s transfer window.
Subsequently it is thought that Inter Milan have been monitoring Tevez’s situation but as yet neither the Italian giants nor any other club with an interest in the player have made a formal bid, prompting Cook to realistically contemplate City being able to field Tevez alongside Aguero. “Tevez is still a Manchester City player and to see him playing alongside Aguero is going to be exciting for all the City fans,” said Cook before going on to add: “I have not spoken to anybody about anything to dispel the notion (that Tevez will stay with City until at least January).”
Adebayor Spurs bound.
Manchester City’s owners have agreed in principle with Tottenham to allow Emanuel Adebayor to move to White Hart Lane on a season-long loan, goal.com has revealed.
City and Spurs are believed to have been engaged in discussions over the financial structure of Adebayor’s prospective loan move for the past fortnight, with the Manchester club keen to free themselves of the overwhelming majority of the player’s £170,000-a-week wages. However, it is now thought that City will pay 50% of Adebayor’s weekly wage to encourage Spurs to loan the Togolese striker, who has been told by Roberto Mancini he will not be included in City’s final 25-man 2011/12 Premier League squad.
However, although City appear to have made a concession on the contribution they will make to the payment of Adebayor’s wages, they are reportedly set to receive a £2m loan fee from Spurs for the striker’s services.
