Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Sergio Aguero is better than Tottenham striker Harry Kane
Sergio Aguero finished with nine goals fewer than Harry Kane in the Premier League last season but marked his return to club action with two well taken goals as the Citizens beat Chelsea 2-0 in Sunday’s Community Shield.
Aguero’s brace took him past the 200 goals mark in a City shirt, leading to high praise from former Manchester United centre-back Ferdinand.
“Getting 200 league goals for Manchester City is a phenomenal amount, and I think he is the best striker in the Premier League,” he told BT Sport. “He was the hardest I played against, with fantastic movement, pace and awareness.
“In terms of someone who is hard to play against, he brings so much off both feet, and with his movement and pace he offers all sorts of problems. Kane is a great player, but Aguero just takes it.”
