Manchester City midfielder-come-defender Fernandinho has insisted that no one within the City camp has doubted Sergio Aguero despite the media suggesting otherwise.
Speaking after the game against Monaco, in which Aguero scored two goals, Fernandinho said:
“Aguero is very important for us, his history at this club speaks for itself.
“With the arrival of Gabriel Jesus and with him scoring goals and providing assists, Aguero ended up on the bench for few games but no one ever had doubts about Aguero’s qualities.
“Today he showed it – not only by scoring goals, but also the way he played. Recovering balls, running, pressing, helping the team.
“For a team that wants to reach the Champions League final, which is our aim, we need that spirit, no matter who is playing, we need to do that.
“This year we are showing that on our games and Aguero more than anyone else embraced that idea, so we are very happy about it.”
