Sergio Aguero: How can Haaland replicate your success at Manchester City?
Sergio Aguero - July 15, 2022
Will Haaland have to change his game to work well with Pep Guardiola and will he suit the Premier League?
Haaland's is a very important signing. I think his goalscoring ability is proven. His stats through the German league and in Europe confirms this.
Logically he will have a period of adaptation to a league as strong as the Premier League but I think he will go through his own process and the results will be seen soon.
I think that an elite player like him will know how to reconcile his style with that of Pep's teams.
It may take a while, as it did in the beginning for us.
But once he gets into gear everything will be simpler. I think he has the talent to fulfill what is asked of him, which are goals.
What will Manchester City miss most about Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling?
Both players were important in the City scheme.
I'm sure City will miss them a lot as they are great players.
There will be a new make-up of the attack but this is a team with a great squad that will be ready for new challenges.
Will Frenkie De Jong be a good signing for Manchester United if that happens? What can Liverpool fans look forward to with Darwin Núñez?
I always say that the Premier League is one of the most competitive in the world.
And every year new top-level players arrive that make it even more attractive. It does not surprise me that there is talk of possible sigings, such as that of De Jong to United, if it is confirmed.
Or the confirmation of the arrival of Darwin Nuñez at Liverpool, who has had a great tournament in Portugal.
For De Jong I can say for having played with him that he has a lot of talent, with Darwin Nuñez I have never played but seen his quality.
These quality players are always good for teams. No team sits still and seeks to improve its squad. That means that the competition never loses interest.
We will continue to see a vibrant Premier, with great players and very attractive matches.
What do you think of Barcelona's possible signings of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessié? What do Barcelona need to do to win La Liga and do well in the Champions League? Is Raphinha a good signing/target for Barcelona?
I think that Xavi is looking to impose his style, which is none other than the usual Barcelona style.
He is a club player and his identity is very clear. I think that in this last part of the season he has managed play as he wanted and now is the time to continue down that path.
He has recovered Ansu Fati, Pedri and Gavi are already a reality and with the new signings he is reinforcing himself to compete at the highest level.
Raphinha will also be important. He already showed it at Leeds. He is a skilled and fast winger who could adapt perfectly.
Xavi is working hard and in a process that takes his time, but I think that as the games pass we will see a competitive Barcelona both in the League and in Europe.
What do you expect from Lionel Messi this season after he recently turned 35 years old? How many goals can we expect from him this season?
I think Leo is always Leo. It's not a question of age and how many goals he will score in a season. That PSG has him is enough to be considered a candidate for everything.
They have changed the coach but the objectives are always the same.
And knowing Leo there will be no competition he doesn't want to win. He always goes for more and this season will be no exception.
What's it like to be a player when a big transfer for you is happening? Are you involved with a lot or are you left to find out from other people? Was there a time when you found out about a transfer of yours really late that you did not know about?
I think it depends on each player. In my case, there weren't many transfers, but I always lived them calmly and convinced of the step I was going to take.
I always trusted a lot in the people who worked with me and advised me.
Do you think the climate for the World Cup in Qatar will suit teams in South America?
I understand that there will be ways to alleviate the climate.
But in any case, it will be the same for all teams. I don't think there will be differences between teams from one continent or another.
I hope that everyone can display their game and see great matches.
Do you think automated offside referees in the World Cup will work?
Like everything, we will have to see it in operation, hopefully so. These are changes that will have to be adapted. Football, and technology, is constantly changing and this is a time of change.
