'Aguero Up There With Ronaldo & Messi'

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says that on current form, Sergio Aguero is in the top three of all footballers along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Argentine international Aguero was scintillating at the weekend, scoring a brace and generally causing chaos in City’s thumping 6-0 win over Spurs.

The former Atletico Madrid star is enjoying a purple patch in front of goal, and his 14 goals in 11 appearances make him the Premier League’s top scorer at present.

And Pellegrini says the ‘Kun’ is proving that he is one of football’s biggest superstars.

“I think Kun, after Messi and Ronaldo, is [in] the top three players in the world,” the City boss said.

Pellegrini’s start to life at City has not been as impressive as he and the club would have hoped.

They had lost four Premier League games before their demolition of Spurs, and had it not been for the open nature of the season, may have been written off already.

But Pellegrini’s charges are seemingly in ominous form now, and having qualified for the next stage of the Champions League for the first time in City’s history as well, the club is on the up again.

Pellegrini senses that with players like Aguero on fire, something special is brewing at the Etihad.

“It is not normal to win by six goals against a strong team like Tottenham but I think we played really well,” he said.

“This team have played six games at home and scored 26 goals so we have [averaged] more than four goals a game.”
