Man City manager Guardiola: Aguero 'has quality'

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has praised the 'quality' of forward Sergio Aguero after his side's emphatic 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night.

With the emergence of 20-year old forward Gabriel Jesus in the second half of the season, many thought Pep would be ready to let Aguero move on.

Instead, Guardiola has optioned to play the Argentinean alongside Jesus to spearhead City's attack.

Speaking after the match, the Spaniard said of Aguero: "He didn't score today but he helped us to make assists. You have to play a lot as the striker.

"I think Sergio has the quality – not just to score goals but to create space behind the defenders. He has the quality to make the pass as well. I'm so, so happy with him.
