[Sergio Aguero on Man City] The fact that an Englishman has an Argentinian as an idol is something very rare. I keep watching the goal that I scored against QPR and every time that I do, I get more emotional. I have no intention of joining another club. My plan is to stay here because City can measure up with Real Madrid, Barcelona and the likes. I am convinced that City will be at their level

[Sergio Aguero on No10 shirt] That No10 shirt has an owner. But somebody had to use it against Peru and Leo asked me to wear it. However, some people wrote to me afterwards and questioned what I was doing in the No10. I told them that shirt belongs to Leo. But I also want to win the World Cup and become the best player in the world

[Sergio Aguero on how he met Lionel Messi] I was about to turn 17. We were both called up [to the Argentina U-20s] for some friendlies. We were at the AFA training complex. I got sat at the table with him, [Ezequiel] Garay and [Lautaro] Formica. I was sat beside him. I looked at him but I didn’t know who he was. They were talking about some football boots. Then Leo sad, ‘They’re from the USA’. So I started thinking, ‘Where’s this guy from?’ I couldn’t resist and I asked him, ‘What’s your name?’ He said ‘Leo’ and I asked, ‘And what’s your surname?’ He said ‘Messi’ but it didn’t mean anything to me. I asked him again to see if it sounded familiar, and he again said ‘Messi’. He laughed and then we all laughed. Later I was thinking and I remembered that there was this kid everyone was talking about, who arrived at Barcelona when he was 12. That’s when I realised it must be him!

[Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says Frank Lampard is his favourite Premier League top ten goalscorer] There are some great names in the Premier League top 20, but without a doubt, for his goal tally and lead over everybody else, Alan Shearer deserves to be on the podium. That said, there are a number of other players I admire. I’d say it’s a matter of taste or playing style because the Premier League has hosted many of the greats – and still does: Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry to name just a few. But as my personal favourite, I’d like to choose Frank Lampard, who in spite of not being necessarily a striker, stands among the top 10 goalscorers. That deserves praise

[Sergio Aguero speaks about team-mate and The Best FIFA Men’s Player 2016 nominee Lionel Messi] You only have to say hello to Leo to realise what a good kid he is. A lot of people don’t know that, because he doesn’t like to show it on TV or in public. He’s just an ordinary guy, though. He’s a good mixer and he cracks jokes just like any Argentinian. He gets on well with everyone and he’s as normal as they come

[Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero reacts after becoming the club’s all-time leading goalscorer] I am very happy for this moment. I am happy because the team helped support me with the City fans and the staff. Thank you very much for everyone. Now, I am enjoying this moment. I am very happy. This moment is once in a lifetime. This [shirt] is for my son. He text me to say: if I score, to bring the shirt to him!

[Sergio Aguero speaks after their 3-1 victory over Watford about his dream of lifting the Champions League trophy with his club] The Premier League isn’t decided yet, but we are in a position of great strength to win it. It’s my seventh year here, I know a bit about the league and the most important thing is to win points in December, and we have done that very well, we have to keep it going in the matches that are left. I would prefer to win the Champions League over the league because it’s something City haven’t won yet

[Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero admits it will be too hard for his side to catch up with Premier League leaders Liverpool] Now, Liverpool is too hard. We have to focus just on winning because we need to play Champions League next season. We have to play the same way and see what happens

[Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says he wants to keep scoring goals in the Premier League] I’m so happy for the record and want to thank my team-mates. I want to keep scoring goals but give all the credit to my team-mates

I don’t know why I’ve stayed in England so long. I didn’t think I’d stay so long at one club, but I was welcomed so warmly, I adapted very well and I’ll keep going now. I just want to keep scoring, focus on every game, and we will be happy if we can have a good championship

[Rooney boasts 208 in the competition, with Shearer leading the way on the 260 he managed for Newcastle and Blackburn Rovers] I’ll try. It’s too far to Shearer maybe, he has too many goals, but I’ll try

[Sergio Aguero shrugs off knee injury worry after helping Man City to Carabao Cup glory] I’m OK, just a kick on my knee, I’m fine. The goal, for me, it’s important when the team is winning, so I am so happy for the goal but I am happy because we are winning the cup

I think they score because of our mistake. At the end, we suffered a little bit but I think we have enough chances to score more goals, but we are happy for the team. It’s the second title for us so we are very happy. We know they are a really tough team because they are really tall and strong, so we knew we could never give up. Happy for the team because it’s tough being here

[Sergio Aguero joked that he knows exactly how focused Guardiola is] He says when Riyad Mahrez or Bernardo Silva receives the ball just to move in behind the centre-backs, he is focused on that. It is fine, he’s fine. Always a good manager and crazy! I substituted him for Rash to make movements more in the space and we talked about the spaces he needs to attack and his mates didn’t find him. I like to be a crazy and a good manager at the same time. I love it!

[Aguero has said previously he wants to return to Independiente, although his contract at City runs until 2021] I always try [to get back to Argentina]. I know what the fans [of Independiente] want, but I have a contract with City, and I try to focus on these two years I’ve got left. Then I’ll see what I’ll do but of course, the Rojo [Independiente] is my priority

[Aguero on the goal which made him Manchester City’s record scorer] I knew that by scoring one goal I would become the club’s all-time goal-scorer. The atmosphere was great, Napoli supporters were pushing really hard and it was beautiful, but at the same time I knew that the game was going to be tough. Obviously, I didn’t know I was going to score, but I tried until I got it. Napoli came close to scoring a third but Ederson saved it and then we scored on the counter attack. When Leroy got the ball I thought ‘ciao!’, but then he fell down, and the ball just came to me, and that was beautiful! I had very clear idea that I wanted to put the ball in the bottom corner, just inside the post. The goal was beautiful; I just had broken the record. That was a fantastic night. Destiny wanted me to score it. If you watch it again, Leroy falls down and the ball could have gone to Kevin or anywhere else, but it came to me. I was happy because of the goal and it was a nice one too!

[Argentina international Aguero will be teaching Spanish as part of the virtual curriculum] It’s a tough time for children at the moment, and also for parents trying to keep them focused on their education from home.

[Aguero defends Messi amid Argentina criticism] I do not understand those who criticise him in the national team. He is the first to suffer and continues to come

[Manchester City star Aguero is contracted until 2021] For now, I’m not thinking about what to do. With all this, the clubs are having problems. Up until next year, it can be extended for two months or more. There are players who end contracts this year and if it is played in July, August or September, the clubs are going to have problems. I don’t know if they can renew with players for three months or six. The first thing is to end this season and hit everything next

[Manchester City star Aguero casts doubt on Premier League restart] The majority of players are scared because they have family; they have children, they have babies, parents. When we go back, I imagine that we will be very tense, we will be very careful, and the moment someone feels ill, you will think: ‘What’s gone on there?’ I hope there is a vaccine so all this ends. It does scare me, but I have just been here with my girlfriend. I haven’t had contact with other people

They say that there are people who have it but who don’t have symptoms and they can infect you. That’s why I’ve stayed at home. You can be infected, and you don’t know anything about it. Fifteen days ago, we were told about a return date [to training] and that was May 4. Now there is a new meeting. It will be difficult to play the Champions League in August

[Sergio Aguero says Messi will stay at Barcelona unless something catastrophic happens] Leo is a player who is already a symbol and legend of Barcelona, but things happen in football. Many players have changed for Leo and he stayed at Barcelona. He loves the club, he identifies with Barcelona, he is comfortable and happy. No matter how many things happen, he will continue. Unless something catastrophic happens

[Aguero won’t rule out return to Spain as Man City deal ticks down] It’s difficult; I’m not thinking about what am I going to do. I know that every day my contract is closer to expiring. Probably there will be some offers but we’ll see. For now I just want to try to win the Champions League with City. That would be an incredible achievement for me and the club. But I haven’t really thought about what I will do after 2021. Also the current landscape makes things more difficult. If next season starts later, it will probably end later - maybe in August, something like that. And a lot of players have their contracts expiring in June - we’ll have to see how everything is sorted out. If contracts are prolonged I don’t know, we’ll see how it goes. I don’t rule out going back to Spain, or going to any country. I don’t know what I will do. Today I feel good and comfortable in Manchester. I want to do everything in the club in the best terms, then we’ll see

We would like to play the second leg against Real Madrid with people in the stands, for sure. It’s beautiful to see the crowd and the atmosphere, but if it’s played without fans it will be for the best for everyone. We took a good result from the Bernabeu. Obviously it won’t be easy, we’re talking about Real Madrid and we know that the game is not finished. We’ll have to be as focused as we were in Madrid. The thing now is to know if it will be possible to play. See if the competitions can be finished and decide the trophy winners. It would feel weird for everyone to decide who wins a trophy without playing all the games

[Sergio Aguero himself had no idea who his new team-mate was] He was on my right and I was talking about trainers with [Ezequiel] Garay and [Lautaro] Formica. Leo at some point said something about the United States. I watched a lot of football, but from Argentina, not Europe. I asked Leo, ‘what was your name?’ ‘Lionel’, he replied and burst out laughing. And I say, ‘what about your last name?’. ‘Messi’, he answered. And the others asked me, ‘don’t you know who he is?’ I knew from the news there was a talented kid from Barcelona and I said, ‘this is him’. Then I saw him train and realised just how good he was

[Aguero hails Liverpool defender as one of the best] We all know Van Dijk is one of the best centre-backs in the world. He’s strong, tall, has an incredible body. He’s very strong face to face, he plays with his body. Also, given he is so tall, he has those long legs. It looks like he isn’t fast but he is, because of his long legs – he can reach everywhere. Two steps from him are 50 for me! What I like the most is the way he is so smart when defending. He’s not anxious when marking, he’s very careful and patient. That makes it difficult for many strikers. In my case, I’m pretty fast and I like to dribble, so I need the defender to come. But if he holds he can wait for help from another defender. He’s very good at thisve any symptoms but still infect you. That’s why I am here at home. Maybe I have the illness and I don’t even know

[Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero tells Thierry Henry who his footballing idol was] When I was a kid, I looked up to Michael Owen. I’ve always said it. I liked him because he’s small. He had the number 10 just like in my club and he played as a forward. So I told myself if a small player like him is doing well in the Premier league then I could make it too. Imagine that I was only a kid. I was nine-ten years old
