Sergio Aguero has jumped to the defence of underfire Atletico Madrid coach Javier Aguirre.

Aguirre was targeted by Atletico fans during the weekend's home defeat to Real Betis, with many calling for the Mexican to be sacked.

But Aguero insisted: "Whenever you're losing, it is normal that fans are angry. And the criticism is always going to be aimed at the coach, but I've always said that we all have to take the blame and not just one.

"We must all move forward together with confidence and calm."
