Aguero: I want to change the league
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says he wants to continue to improve on his stunning debut and help his new club to challenge for the Premier League title.
Aguero bagged two goals and an assist in the 4-0 win over Swansea on Monday night, but the £38 million signing from Atletico Madrid is not content to rest on his laurels and wants to push City to win their first ever league trophy.
"This is a chance for me to change the league," he was quoted as saying in The Daily Mirror. "This is a team with a lot of quality. I know it's a competitive league but we're here to win it in the end.
"I have just played for a few minutes, but it was great to get my first goal and the one at the end. Now I want to keep it going. This is a team that is growing and developing and I want to help them do that.''
The 23-year-old also promised City fans that he will give his best to the club on the pitch.
"My style has always been to fight to the death for every ball, and give 100% for every game, to be concentrated to the maximum for everything I do - movement, running off the ball, winning the ball back and scoring goals,'' he added. ''I'm not a player who can do everything, but I have plenty to offer."
Meanwhile strike partner Edin Dzeko says he is is excited by the prospect of playing alongside Aguero.
''It's amazing for a new player to come on for the last 30 minutes and score two goals,'' he said. ''I am very happy for him, but I am also happy for City in getting a player like him - he can only help us in the future.
''And he is not even 100% fit yet. In the next games he can only get better and better. He scored twice when not fit, so we can't wait to see what he is like at 100%. Every good player is welcome to our team as we want to win titles.''
