Aguero refutes Barca comparison

Roberto Mancini’s men have been earning praise for their
revitalised style of play and, on Saturday, Wigan were swept aside
3-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero scored a brilliant hat-trick in
the win over the Latics and combined superbly with team-mates David
Silva, Carlos Tevez, who started and had a penalty saved, and Samir
Nasri. City’s free-flowing win over Wigan drew post-match
comparisons to Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona, but Aguero does not want
to get carried away. He said in The Sun: “Barcelona are a team that
have played together for a lot of years in the same style and they
have great players, but we also have good players with ability on
the ball. “Nasri and myself have only come to City this season, but
there are players, like David Silva, who were here before who have
a similar style and way of thinking which allows us to keep the
ball, to try to dominate possession. “It’s so important in modern
football to have the ability to be comfortable and have quality on
the ball and we have it. “We move it quickly and that’s vital, but
we’re not thinking about Barcelona. We’re thinking about ourselves
really and trying to develop our own style of play with our own
players and do the things Roberto Mancini wants us to do. “And we
are feeling good because we’re creating a lot of chances and
scoring a lot of goals in our own style and it’s one we want to
develop, to improve.”
