Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero admits he uses father-in-law Diego Maradona as inspiration.

Aguero has made a fine start at City since a £35million summer move from Atletico Madrid, scoring 11 times in 15 appearances, but the 23-year-old still dreams of reaching his compatriot's heights.

"In the past he told me everything about Napoli, and I have also seen on TV what he did, how important he was for the fans," he said.

"This is matter of pride for me because I am Argentinian.

"It is my dream, doing what Maradona did for Napoli, doing the same for Manchester City.

"But I don't want to talk about myself, it is important Manchester City do well as a team."
