Sergio Aguero: Manchester is Blue now - and I love the rain, too

People say that you’re something of a magician on the pitch…
[Interrupting] Yeah, right. I wish! [FFT: Well that’s what some say, what’s your favourite trick?] Ah, come on, I don’t really have a trick, do I? My characteristics are always to look for one-on-ones with a defender, to defy them and to see what happens next. I’m someone who likes to dribble, and I guess those instincts have worked out pretty well for me. It’s got nothing to do with me, really, more that my coaches have always asked me to express myself.

Do you know any magic tricks?
Nah, not really. I’ve seen a few on television or at shows, but I’ve got no bloody idea how to do a magic track. Although, I have done a couple on my son to make him think I’ve got magical powers, but to ‘big people’ [mimes a massive guy with huge shoulders], no chance! If I can be a magician to my son, I’ll take that!
