Aguero admits he might have to step aside to let Gabriel Jesus flourish at City

Date Posted,April 26, 2017

Sergio Aguero has admitted he may have to get used to sitting on the bench to allow Gabriel Jesus to flourish at Manchester City .

Brazilian wonderkid Jesus netted three times in three Premier League starts after joining City in January, forcing Aguero to get used to the bench.

But a foot injury against Bournemouth kept him out of action for three and a half month as Argentine superstar Aguero reclaimed his starting XI place with 12 goals in as many games.

Jesus returned to the City bench against Manchester United this evening to put pressure on Aguero.

And former Atletico Madrid man Aguero has confessed he is resigned to letting fresh blood reign in Pep Guardiola’s team.

“He’s a very good young player which is why he is at City,” Aguero told Sky Sports.
