Aguero: 'I couldn't have joined a better club.'

MR 350: A milestone appearance for Sergio and marked with a goal, obviously!
Sergio Aguero says joining City was the best decision of his career.

The Club’s record goal-scorer marked yet another milestone with his 350th appearance for the Blues against Southampton and, typically, celebrated with a couple more goals to add to his ever-increasing tally.

Aguero now has 243 goals to date and is already 66 goals ahead of second-placed Eric Brook in the most goals list.

Now in his eight season with City, it’s little wonder that he believes he couldn’t have made a better choice when he left Atletico Madrid in 2011.

“It was hard to imagine spending so long with one club when I first started off… but as time went by, it became clearer to me that it was exactly what I wanted.

“And here I am - enjoying my eighth season with Manchester City.

                        Aguero: 'I couldn't have joined a better club.'

“I’ve felt very comfortable since my first day here, and this feeling has only become stronger as the years continued.”

During his 11 years at City, former skipper Vincent Kompany claimed to be an honorary Mancunian, with Manchester a huge part of his life.

Sergio says he fully understands the Belgian’s sentiments.

“How couldn’t I feel like a Mancunian?” he said.

“I feel at home in this club and in this city. As soon as I arrived, I’ve felt like I belonged - that made the adaptation process much more natural.

“The respect and affection that I receive daily means a lot to me. It’s never easy to be far from my family, and, especially, from my son Benjamin.

“I’ve grown quite fond of Manchester over the years. It’s a city that experiences football with a great intensity - and, in spite of the local rivalry, the relationship with our neighbours has always been friendly and cordial towards me.

“I believe coming to Manchester City is one of the best decisions I’ve taken in my life.”
