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."
