Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Keith Gillespie has hailed Sergio Aguero as one of the Premier League’s greatest ever strikers.
Aguero is also City’s all-time top goalscorer in the club’s history – with his most famous strike coming in stoppage-time against QPR in 2012 which saw City claim their first league title for almost half a century.
The former Atletico Madrid frontman has missed large spells of this season with different injuries and COVID-19 issues, scoring just three times in 15 outings, but remains on course to add to his 10 major trophies during his decade with City.
But how does the Argentine rank in terms of previous greats such as Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer? Gillespie told Football FanCast that he’s right up there.
“Without a doubt. He’s in the list with those other ones. Everyone will have those opinions about whose the best.
“You look at Alan Shearer, the amount of goals that he scored, then you look at Thierry Henry, different type of player but scored a lot of goals, Rooney as well.
“It’s so difficult because we’ve seen so many different strikers in the Premier League.”
Despite all of his records and achievements, Aguero was remarkably never named as PFA Players’ Player of the Year, but will be remembered as one of the best strikers to ever grace the Premier League.
