Sergio Aguero’s father has accused Pep Guardiola of using fake tears when talking about his son’s departure from Manchester City.
After City won the Premier League title and Aguero played his final game for the club, emotions were running high. Guardiola, in the midst of an interview with Sky Sports, couldn’t hold back his emotions when proclaiming that the club “could not replace him” after the Argentine enjoyed more than a decade of success in Manchester.

However, during a recent interview with Radio La Red, Aguero’s father insisted that he does not believe the show of emotion by Guardiola.
“I don’t believe his tears. For me, he never wanted Kun. He always wants to be the main man and not the players,” he said.
“I don’t believe [in] Guardiola. He never wanted it [the CL trophy], he wants to be the protagonist of all the teams.”
“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 [Aguero] was [allowed to stay] until the last time [he renewed his contract] but it was not possible [this time].”
Aguero was unable to go out on top with City in Europe, losing in the Champions League final to Chelsea in Porto. Alas, he did manage to help them get over the finish line in the Premier League.
His father also revealed that Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea had all expressed interest in signing Aguero before he opted to join Barcelona.
