Aguero: Call me Che Guevara

Sergio Aguero has promised to light up the Premier League as Manchester City prepare to formally announce his move from Atletico Madrid, calling himself "the Che Guevara of modern soccer".

• Aguero: I've signed for City
• Aguero arrives in Manchester

Aguero, who turned 23 last month, was quick to distance himself from any comparisons to Argentina legend, and father-in-law, Diego Maradona - preferring to be seen as a footballing revolutionary himself.

Aguero told the Sun: "No one will ever be exactly like Maradona again but I really think that every so often there is a total revolution in football and someone needs to be the revolutionary who starts things off. That's me.

"Maradona made some 'noise' in his day and I want to roar a bit in my day - now.

"I like tricks, I like to dazzle, I like to be able to score a goal with one leg bent round the other so that you smack the ball into the net with your wrong foot. Dribbling and leaving your opponent on his backside is what life is for.

"If I achieve what I want to then I'll mark a distinct era in football. I'm the Che Guevara of modern soccer."

The striker, who will cost the Champions League newcomers around £38 million, has already announced he has signed for City via his official Twitter account, and all that is now left is for the club to confirm the deal.

City travel to Ireland for the Dublin Super Cup this weekend, and the club left a "plus one other" under strikers on their squad announcement for the event at the Aviva Stadium. Aguero seems certain to fill that position.

Only four players - Lionel Messi, David Villa, Diego Forlan and Frederic Kanoute - scored more La Liga goals than Aguero since he moved to Atletico from Independiente in 2006.
