Aguero denies making Guardiola comments

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has moved to clarify the recent comments he made about Bayern München boss Pep Guardiola.

In an interview with TyC Sports in October, Aguero was asked about a myriad of subjects, including the recent influx of a number of high-profile managers to the Premier League.

At the time there were rumours that suggested Guardiola was being lined up as a potential replacement for Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City.

Aguero has now made it clear that his answer was misquoted, with several news outlets in England at the time claiming he would "like to be coached by [Guardiola] in the future".

"I never said that," Aguero told Goal. "They asked if I would like it if he comes [to England], like Klopp at Liverpool.

"I said that obviously the best managers that are in English football are here because it's beautiful and because English football is the best in the world.

"But obviously players, like playing [with the best], would like to be coached by the best coaches, but that's not necessarily talking about him."

He added: "I don't know him. But from how people talk about him, and for what Guardiola has won as well, obviously he's one of the best coaches in the world."
