Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola admitted he was left in awe of ‘special’ striker Sergio Aguero after his second hat-trick of the season steered Manchester City to an emphatic victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in their Champions League Group C opener.
Manchester City swept aside the Germans 4-0 in their delayed clash at the Etihad Stadium.
City have now won seven in succession since Guardiola took charge in the summer, while Aguero – who will miss the next two matches as he completes a domestic suspension – has scored nine in just five appearances.

And the Manchester City Boss Guardiola was full of praise for the red-hot hitman
“Sergio is one of the best, no doubts about that. He has a special quality in the box. He’s a special player,” the City boss said after the final whistle.
“I never won before against this coach and he always creates a lot of problems for my team but we created a really good performance, except for 10-15 minutes in the first half.”
