Pep Guardiola gushed over Sergio Aguero’s exit after the final Premier League game of the season. The Manchester City coach was seen in tears like a small boy who’d just spilled his ice cream. To this sentimental reaction, everyone responded in one of two ways. Aguero’s father also came ahead and blasted Pep Guardiola claiming he don’t believe his tears.
One was those who went all teary-eyed and said, ‘oh what a wonderful tribute that is well-done Pep.’ On the other hand, some reacted by throwing their remote at the screen and yelling, ‘well why are you letting him go then!?’
Sergio Aguero’s father Leonel del Castillo went on a bizarre rant, during an Argentinian radio show, alleging Guardiola’s tears were fake. He also insisted that the Catalan manager is desperate to always be the center of attention at his club.
“I don’t believe his tears,” he told A Radio La Red according to the Mirror. “For me, he never wanted Kun. He always wants to be the main man and not the players. I don’t believe [in] Guardiola. He never wanted it [the Champions League trophy], he wants to be the protagonist of all the teams.”
“He says that he [Aguero] is irreplaceable and he does not have him in the squad. There are things about Guardiola, he is a great coach. But from one day to the next the players change you, the environment changes. You never know if you are a starter or not.”
“There is someone who says if you are not here to stay at the club and you have no choice but to change. He was [allowed to stay] until the last time [he renewed his contract] but it was not possible to stay with the team where he is an idol.”
Sergio Aguero has joined Barcelona on a free transfer after serving Man City for a decade. Just days after arriving in Camp Nou, where he reunited with old friend Lionel Messi, the forward tested coronavirus positive.
