Sergio Aguero admits Manchester City teammate Carlos Tevez is his hero.

Although Tevez's future in Manchester remains uncertain, but Aguero admits his Argentina team-mate is his idol.

He said: "He's my hero, my role model, my reference point. It was all about Tevez when I was in my formative stages as a footballer.

"I was 12 or 13 years old and I used to follow him closely. When I was 17 or 18 he was at Boca Juniors and I loved him as a player.

"I thought he was great. I wanted to watch him because we played in more or less the same position.

"We had the same style. The difference was that he was at Boca and I was at Independiente.

"Carlos likes to struggle and to fight - and I wanted to be like that too."
