Aguero happy despite struggle

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says he remains happy at

the club but admits the recent breakdown of his marriage has tested

his focus.

The 24-year-old recently split with his wife of four years,

Giannina Maradona, youngest daughter of Argentinian legend Diego

and mother of the couple’s son, Benjamin.

Giannina has since returned to their native Argentina with their

son and Aguero admits he is finding the separation tough.

But the frontman, who signed at the Etihad Stadium from Atletico

Madrid for a reported ?34million in July 2011, says it is not

affecting his performances for City and remains content at the

Premier League club.

Aguero, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury for City’s

clash with Watford in the FA Cup, said: “It is hard for me because

Ben is in Argentina and I’m here.

“I try so that it doesn’t influence my performances, because I

try to be a professional.

“I think that that is not affecting my performances, but let me

tell you: it’s hard to be far away from your son. It’s impossible

for me not to miss him.

“I have a good relationship with the City fans, I’m so happy

here. But I’m trying to adapt myself to my new situation after my

break-up.”
