Man City boss Guardiola on 2-goal Aguero: Sometimes players are unhappy with me

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with two-goal Sergio Aguero for victory over Bournemouth.

Having netted a brace against the Cherries and created an assist, the Argentine produced a Man of the Match display and Guardiola was pleased his players – aware of their squad competition - are taking their chances to shine.

“I was a football player," he said. “I understand the players in that when they are substituted and don't play, they are sad and upset.

“I understand our job is to try and search to find a weakness but I try to have the best relationship with my players as possible.

“Sometimes, I think Gabriel Jesus deserves to play – and Bernardo Silva and Eliaquim Mangala.

“The important thing is that they have respect between each other.

“If they are not happy with me, that is not a problem but they have an amazing relationship between them.

“The locker room is a dream and to play with them and train with them.

“I have a lot of respect for Sergio Aguero and all he has done, what he does and what he will do in the future.

“He will decide everything about his future and his life. I am so happy to have him here with Gabriel Jesus and the squad."
