Sergio Agureo has pledged his future to Manchester City by claiming he will stay at the club until they win the Champions League, Sky
Aguero signed for the blue half of Manchester back in 2011 for a reported £38m and has been a revelation ever since – in recent weeks becoming their all-time Premier League scorer and the leading goals to minutes ratio holder in the league’s history.
City have had a dismal showing in the Champions League once again and are on the brink of another early exit from the competition after their shock defeat at home to CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night – failure to reach the knockout stages would be their third time of doing so in four attempts.
Speculation has mounted that some of the club’s top players could contemplate moving elsewhere in a bid to make more of an impression on the tournament but Aguero has insisted this is not the case for him.
The 26-year-old signed a new five-year deal over the summer and has stated that he will honour his contract and then some in a bid to deliver the most coveted trophy in club football.
He said: “Not only will I stay the four (remaining) years to make it eight here in total, I’ll stay beyond that – until we win it.”
The Argentinian has also backed his manager Manuel Pellegrini after critics directed the blame at the City boss, insisting that it is a collective effort.
He added: “It’s easy for everyone to suddenly decide it’s the man at the helm who is to blame, but I would say in situations like this, when we haven’t played well as a group, we are all in it together.
“It is not just the manager, and not just the players – we are all to blame as a group and we need to work our way out of this situation as a group.”
