Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has fired a warning to fellow Premier League title competitors, assuring them that his best is yet to come this season as he looks to help Manuel Pellegrini’s men back to the top of the league.
As time goes on I’m getting to feel better physically and I’m getting my full fitness back, which is great. Obviously, as I get back to full fitness, the goals will start to flow. It’s all about carrying on in the same way, playing in the same way and to try and keep on winning.
However, after a stop-start season so far due to a couple of niggling injury problems throughout the course of the campaign, Aguero is confident that he is nearing his best form and fitness levels.
Despite missing nine weeks, the Argentinian international has racked up an outstanding 13 goals for his side this season, unsurprisingly finding himself in yet another race for the Premier League golden boot.
Aguero has also accepted that he was wrong to return to action so soon after previous injuries, but has stated that all of his major setbacks are behind him and if another niggling injury is to arise for the prolific 27-year-old, it will be dealt in a more sensible and risk-free manner.
Nowadays I’ve learnt from that and I try not to make the same mistake. Now I realise the slightest discomfort and I won’t risk myself, as happened to me for the home game against Sunderland in December. I started the previous game against Arsenal when I felt a slight pain in my knee, and I was told, ‘That’s it, you’re coming off’.
Now I feel like I’m getting up to full fitness for games and trying to miss as few games as possible, that’s the most important thing. On top of that, the Premier League is so demanding that you can’t play at 80 per cent. I’ve tried turning out at 80 to 85 per cent fit and that’s when I’ve injured myself.
Can Aguero help City to win the Premier League this season?
