Man City great Aguero sets 'Zlatan' straight on Argentina World Cup celebrations: We've all seen your career

Former Argentina striker Sergio Aguero has taken exception to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's comments about their World Cup winning squad.

Ibrahimovic felt that some of the Argentina celebrations were over the top and embarrassing.

He also said that they would not win another World Cup, given their talisman Lionel Messi is at the tail end of his career.

“Do I say what I think or not? Zlatan. Ibrahimovic. Ibra-himovic. It's the same, it's a pretty difficult name, it's better to say Zlatan," Aguero responded in a Twitch rant.

“Zlatan, before saying that, perhaps it was better to round off that you preferred France to win, to say that the others behaved badly. If they behaved badly, you say that you say it as a high-level professional.

“You played, I also played at a high level. But let's remember that you also behaved badly while playing. I believe, right? In other words, in the end, we don't throw stones if they are going to throw us again later.

“The saying in Argentina is: do not spit up if you are going to fall. I don't know. Or let's remember on the court that you have, let's say, bad behaviors. Some ironing.

“Some pineapple, some pineapple, I remember that in Galaxy you hit him with a pineapple and then, I remember, you pretended that he hurt you and stepped on you. Is that for you behaving well or behaving badly? Let's think.

“'I remember that we played against United, Manchester City. I was at the bank. You went to plays, you answered.

“To speak that they behaved badly, I think you are the least suitable to speak. I think. It seems to me that you are wrong on this one. In the end it's your opinion, right?…

“It seems to me that it is very rude to say that we are not going to win more. I think that before worrying about Argentina, you could worry about your country, about your players, who are not even in the last World Cups.

“Could we think so? They didn't classify. But, well, I don't know. More than worrying about Argentina and talking like that… Of course, I think, as you think.

“And Messi won. Maybe that makes you angry, that Messi has won the World Cup and that's why it hurts you to admit that Messi is the best player in the world, and it hurts you that he won the World Cup in Argentina.

“This is football. Sometimes it is played well, it is played badly. You play well and you play well being a rascal on the pitch. I don't know. Also note that other countries behaved badly.

“Besides, weird, because he's quite a fighting player. fighter. It's like me, who always fights on the field, says that these players are bad milk and hit like crazy. And I am one of those, who hits like crazy.

“I'm saying something that doesn't make sense. Let's just say it's not fair. It's not fair what he's saying. If you tell me that you are a good, very good (behavioral) player, there is no need to argue.

“But you are a fighter. I remember that you had a fight with Otamendi, too, in a match between City and United. You argued with Pep, Pep Guardiola.

“I imagine that for something Pep later wanted to sell you from Barcelona. I suppose that to talk about how Argentina behaved badly, you first have to look at your career to see if you behaved well, if you behaved moderately well. And I don't think you behaved well."
