Premier League winners Alan Shearer and Vincent Kompany are among those who’ve lavished praise on Sergio Aguero after breaking two long-standing records in Manchester City’s 6-1 win at Aston Villa on Sunday.
“Congrats @aguerosergiokun. A special day for a special player,” Shearer posted on Twitter.
Aguero’s former City skipper Kompany said: “What a legend Sergio is… when he scored against QPR> and everyone said ‘Agueroooo’, you take that goal in isolation and he is always going to be a legend to me.
“He has been part of a very important core of players and no matter what happens, he will always be remembered as one guy who helped us get to the next level, such a level.”
“Henry is one of the most incredible players that I have seen in this league, but I think he would be happy that Sergio is the guy who breaks his record,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.
“He was a legend and Sergio is the same.”
