Ex-United Striker: Aguero Should Have Joined Chelsea Not City

By on August 1, 2011

Atletico Madrid star Diego Forlan believes former team-mate Sergio Aguero should have held out for a move to Chelsea.

Rumours suggested that Chelsea tried to sign Aguero before they signed former Liverpool star Fernando Torres. Forlan admits it was no surprise to see the 23-year old leave, but expected the forward to sign for the Blues.

“It was no real surprise to see him leave, but I thought it would have been to a different club,” the former Manchester United forward told The People.

“Chelsea’s game and squad are more suited to his style. And of course I am a Manchester United fan, so his decision to move to City is also painful for me.”

The Uruguay ace added: “I know City are now one of the big clubs in England, so I wish Sergio luck.

“But I know from my own time in England that the Premier League is not like La Liga.

“The key for him will be how he adapts to the style of the game and also the country.

The former Manchester Untied front man believes Aguero will be a star in England.

“He can be a success because he is a star… he can be a king at any club.

“The best asset of Aguero is the number of goals he scores, and when he scores them. He is a killer and could also destroy many defenders with his dribbles.

“Personally, it is bad news to me because I will now miss a big companion in attack at Atletico.

“He is not the tallest, but that is not a problem, and neither is the hardness of the English defenders.

“I do not know if (Carlos) Tevez will stay at City, but a Tevez-Aguero pairing could be sensational for City. For La Liga, this is all bad news, but for the Premier League, it’s a success to have such a player.”
