Sergio Aguero is unhappy AGAIN at Man City and feels Pep Guardiola doesn’t respect him 

The star striker feels things haven't changed since last season and could leave the club in the summer

Same old noise, different season. 

According to sources close to Sergio Aguero, the Manchester City striker is once again unhappy with life under Pep Guardiola – and believes the gaffer is forcing him out of the club.

Trouble in paradise?

Trouble in paradise?

Aguero – who became City’s all-time top goalscorer this season – reportedly feels his achievements with the club and his efforts to adapt his game to suit Guardiola’s unique style is being taken for granted, and ultimately believes the Catalan coach doesn’t respect him.

Hmm, we’ve heard this one before?

Last year, you may remember numerous reports claiming Aguero was growing increasingly unhappy under Guardiola, who demanded the striker make changes to his game.

Things then got even worse for the Argentinian at the start of 2017, when he lost his place up front to young hotshot Gabriel Jesus.

It was all doom and gloom over the summer, but his place in the side looked fairly assured until only recently, when the 29-year-old found himself being regularly rotated by the manager – which meant he was left on the bench for the Manchester derby and the Champions League clash with Napoli.

He did start in the 4-1 thrashing of Tottenham last week, but was replaced after only 56 minutes – with Guardiola later stating that he wanted “a little more energy” in attack.

The striker certainly looked annoyed as he left the pitch, throwing off his gloves to the ground and avoiding Guardiola’s gaze as he made his way to the bench.

However, Guardiola seemingly has no problem with the striker – and even called him a “club legend” after he became City’s all-time top goalscorer recently.

He also clarified last year that he wanted him to stay, saying: “I want to be clear that I am so happy with Sergio, and hopefully he can stay for a long, long time here.”

Chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak also publicly stated at the time that “having Sergio Aguero as part of the squad is an absolute must.”

So there we go. 

We fully expect to hear more rumours surrounding Aguero in the new year.

Proving, once again, that nothing ever really changes, does it?
