Man City ready for title battle, Sergio Aguero warns Man United
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero promises the Eastlands outfit will fight for the Premier League title "until the very end"
Sergio Aguero insists Manchester City will keep fighting to secure the club’s first Premier League title, despite dropping points against Stoke City on Saturday.
The Argentine forward netted a late penalty against Chelsea last week to help City to a 2-1 victory over the Blues and keep their title pursuit on track.
But Aguero was unavailable to face Stoke at the Britannia Stadium, and Manchester United’s 1-0 win against Fulham on Monday night means City trail their fierce local rivals by three points – although the Eastlands outfit have the better goal difference.
“I can promise you that we’ll be fighting until the very end,” Aguero told City’s website.
“We all want to make it and though it won’t be easy, we believe we can win the Premier League this season.
“Winning titles is about never giving up and we will never give up. I want to win it this season and then many more with City after that.”
The 23-year-old joined City for around £38m from Atletico Madrid last August and has made a big impact at Eastlands, scoring 24 goals for Roberto Mancini’s side.
Aguero paid tribute to his team-mates for helping him settle into English football so speedily, and the ambitious Argentina forward believes there is much more to come from City.
“I was able to adapt quickly to the team and to the Premier League,” he said. “That was all due to my team-mates, the club and especially the fans.
“We have had a great season but there is so much more to come from this team. I’ve been told we’ve broken historic records and that’s already an achievement. I’ve also learnt it’s important to respect our progress an on-going process.
“As for moving to England, my family and I feel we’ve adapted really well to living in Manchester and we haven’t been here for too long, either.
“The staff of the club and my team-mates have been very supportive, especially Pablo Zabaleta who has been here for quite a while.”
