Nolito: It’s a privilege to have ‘killer’ Aguero in Man City team

Nolito was full of praise for Sergio Aguero in the wake of Manchester City's 5-0 win over Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday night.

The Argentine striker helped himself to a hat-trick despite missing two penalties in the first leg of the Champions League play-off in Romania, prompting words of adulation from teammate Nolito.

"It's not a problem for him," said the summer signing of Aguero's penalty misses.

"We are happy how the match turned out and he scored three goals so let's hope he carries on scoring like this.

"Kun is a great player, a great striker, one of the best strikers in the world and this is football.

"He has shown, despite missing two penalties, that he is a great striker and that he is not worried or affected by the misses at all.

"It's a privilege to have him in our team. We know how good he is.

"He is a killer, a great goal scorer. I think he is going to help us a lot this season."
