Man City legend Aguero admits pushing 'Pep to play Foden more'

Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero admits pushing Pep Guardiola to play Phil Foden more last season.

In Tuesday night's win against Real Madrid, Foden equalled Wayne Rooney for most Champions League goals by an Englishman at 21.

Aguero, 33, was talking to Mario Balotelli live on his Twitch channel during the epic 4-3 victory for Manchester City.

The icon said: "F***. Foden. My blue prince. My chick.

"Well Foden, I told you Mario, Foden started playing because I asked Pep to play him more."
