Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says Sergio Aguero can match the heights of fellow Argie Lionel Messi. Mancini is convinced El Kun will repeat the success Messi has enjoyed with Barcelona.

He said: "Carlos Tevez has reached his maximum potential. Aguero, who is 23, on the other hand, has not having scored 24-25 goals in his first season in the Premier League.

"If you listen to me, Kun will become like Messi, someone who scores once or twice a game."
