Aguero: I can be the Maradona of Man City!

Manchester City signing Sergio Aguero is ready to make a huge impact in England.

City's record signing would rather be compared to the famous Argentinian revolutionary leader than his country's greatest-ever footballer, Diego Maradona.

And that is despite the fact Maradona is his father-in-law and grandad to Aguero's two-year-old son Benjamin!

Aguero, a £40million capture from Atletico Madrid, explained: "No one will ever be exactly like Maradona again but I really think that every so often there is a total revolution in football and someone needs to be the revolutionary who starts things off. That´s me.

"Maradona made some 'noise' in his day and I want to roar a bit in my day - now!

"I like tricks, I like to dazzle, I like to be able to score a goal with one leg bent round the other so that you smack the ball into the net with your wrong foot.

"Dribbling and leaving your opponent on his backside is what life is for."
