Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager, while Aguero – the club’s record goalscorer – played a key role in leading the team to unorthodox League Cups on numerous occasions.
Arteta has worked with Aguero for over 3 consecutive years.
With the news this week that his former colleague is ready to leave Manchester City at the end of the season, Arteta paid tribute to the Argentina international.
“Not only the way he plays, his charisma, his personality, the way he is. He’s loved by everybody at that club. It’s sad to see someone leaving like him but I think with what he’s done, he’ll be there for history.” – Arteta
Arteta was then asked to decide who the better foreign Premier League striker was, Sergio Aguero or Thierry Henry?
“Aguero is one of the best for sure. The consistency that he’s shown at this level and this league, I think it puts him right there with the best. We can discuss within that who is the best, but for me, he’s one of the best.” – Arteta
