Man City boss Guardiola: I cannot teach Aguero!

Sergio Aguero was the subject of praise from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola on Wednesday night.

The Argentine striker scored a hat-trick as City cruised past Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in their Champions League opener at the Etihad Stadium.

"He was good with Manuel [Pellegrini], he was good with the national team…I only wanted to convince him that his talent of scoring in the box is natural," Guardiola said of Aguero.

"I cannot teach that. He has to know the team around is going to help him. He is going to score a lot of goals."

Aguero nicked in at the front post to send home Aleksandar Kolarov's left-flank cross inside 10 minutes before coolly converting from the penalty spot just before the half-hour mark.

The 28-year-old then completed his treble when receiving a lovely ball from Raheem Sterling, advancing into the area and rounding Yann Sommer to slot home with ease.
