Man City whiz Torres: Aguero teaching me about No9 role; Garcia deserves Barcelona success

Manchester City ace Ferran Torres admits he's been learning about the No9 role from Sergio Aguero.

City manager Pep Guardiola has hinted Torres could play next season as a striker.

And the youngster told Sport: "For me, he is an inspiration. He has been here 10 years, in his last Premier match he broke even another record… he is a striker who needs almost nothing to score.

"Kun is a very close guy, and when I started playing as a forward he gave me a lot of advice. About what I had to do, my qualities… he tried to teach me how to be smart. City is a team that almost always accumulates many opponents locked up close to their area.

"For this reason, in the end it is very important to be there, in the area. It is where the centres or the last pass fall."

Torres also says Eric Garcia will be missed as he returns to Barcelona this summer.

He added: "For me, Eric is a top centre-back. Every time I have played with him I have been very comfortable, because of the ball output, firmness and security that he has. We know that he will not remain in Manchester, and I can only wish him the best because he deserves it."
