Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero may have been ‘unhappy’ for some time having been left on the bench for much of the season. 

That’s according to Wolves legend Steve Bull, who claims the Argentinian frontman may have ‘spat his dummy out’ when Pep Guardiola was keeping him amongst the substitutes.

Aguero recently announced this season would be his last with the Citizens, ending a 10-year spell at the Etihad in the process.

The 34-year-old established himself a club icon with his last-gasp, Premier League-clinching goal against QPR back in 2012 and will leave as the club’s record goalscorer.

However, Bull, himself a goalscoring phenomenon, has told Football FanCast that the 5’6 dynamo may feel this week’s decision has been forced somewhat:

“I think he may have spat his dummy out about five months ago when he wasn’t in the first team and he’s never put it back in since, and he’s been a little bit unhappy.

“He’s a bit like (Daniel) Podence and (Pedro) Neto with a low centre of gravity and they can stand tall while not getting pushed off the ball.

“All the Man City fans should pat him on the back and say ‘thanks for everything that you’ve done for us mate you’ve been absolutely unbelievable’.”

Ultimately, having played just 15 times this season in all competitions, scoring on three occasions, it’s no surprise the 97-cap superstar would look to rediscover regular football elsewhere.

Should Sergio Aguero have stayed another season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Following the confirmation of Aguero’s departure, Guardiola has been speaking about the possibilities in terms of a replacement, suggesting the club won’t be in any rush to break the bank this summer on the likes of or Harry .
