Aguero admits unsettled Man City teammate Tevez his idol

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."
