Messi: Aguero up there with the best


Lionel Messi believes that Manchester City star Sergio Aguero is among the very best strikers in the world and is in the same bracket as team-mate Luis Suarez.

Aguero has received a glowing reference from international team-mate Lionel Messi, who ranks him as one of the best strikers in world football.

“Kun is a very simple and easy-going person, a great lad and, as a striker, one of the best. As is Luis [Suarez],” Messi told ‘The Sun’.

“They are different but, if you want to look at it like that, either of them can decide a game. They are both very decisive”.

Aguero has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals in 13 games in all competitions for the Citizens. Despite this, he wasn’t selected to start Manchester City’s 4-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona, but is expected to start in the return fixture on Tuesday night.
