Aguero convinced Man City step up from Atletico Madrid

Sergio Aguero is convinced moving from Atletico Madrid to Manchester City is a step up.

Aguero is the latest in a line of high-profile signings for City from the Spanish league, and he is already familiar with new team-mates Yaya Toure and David Silva from having played against them in La Liga.

"Of course the are great players, and yes I have played against them in the past but now they are here, in a team which right now is one of the biggest teams in England," Aguero said.

"So for sure they are great players and I'm lucky to be playing alongside them. I'm happy about that."

Asked what he would add to the side, Aguero said: "My style has always been to fight to the death for every ball, and give 100% in every game.

"Be concentrated to the maximum in everything I do; movement, running off the ball, winning the ball back and scoring goals. I'm not a player who can do everything, but I still have plenty to offer."

Looking to the future, Aguero hopes to help City add to their FA Cup success of last season.

"I saw the game (FA Cup final) and I think we are a team that in the future will be fighting every year to win major trophies, and let's hope that it's quite a few major trophies," he said.

Asked about the differences between La Liga and Premier League, he added: "I think in terms of technique the leagues are similar, maybe the game is more physical in England and there is a greater emphasis on tactics in Spain.

"From what I've seen on TV there is a high level of skill here and the football and the surfaces are very quick. Personally I like it when the pitches are quick, because when I commit a defender, they can lose their footing more easily and that can only be a good thing.

"It is quite different but I need to wait for my first game, go out and do my best and find out for real what it's like, because playing is not the same as watching it on TV."
