We can’t give up! Sergio Aguero says Man City can retain league title
Manchester City's Sergio Aguero says the defending champions can't give up their title defence despite Manchester United's lead
Sergio Aguero believes Manchester City can still win the Premier League title despite trailing Manchester United by 12 points.
Roberto Mancini’s men were 2-0 winners against Chelsea last Sunday which helped reduce the deficit from 15 points after the Red Devils beat Queens Park Rangers.
Aguero has endured a below-par season by his high standards, with a poor return of 13 goals in all competitions after producing 30 strikes in the 2011/12 campaign.
But the Argentina international, who scored the winning goal against QPR which sealed the league crown last season, remains optimistic.
“Can we still win the title? I’d like to believe so,” said the 24-year-old. “We can’t give up, even though it looks tough.”
City’s other remaining chance of silverware is the FA Cup, with a quarter-final clash against Barnsley in March as Mancini bids to win the competition for a second time.
“Let’s take it step by step,” he added. “Take the FA Cup, each victory means we are a step closer to winning the competition.
“It’s about keeping focused and trusting in our game. That applies to all our remaining Premier League games too.”
