Aguero can fit into English game

29 July 2011 04:06

Manchester City signing Sergio Aguero is confident he can adapt his game to the demands of the English Premier League.

Argentina international Aguero completed a move from La Liga club Atletico Madrid to City for a reported fee of 35 million pounds on Thursday.

The 23-year-old forward has just 10 days until City take on local rivals Manchester United in the FA Community Shield.

The Premier League season then begins for City with the visit of promoted Swansea on August 15, with Aguero keen to be involved.

"I'm sure I'll settle in well to the team," Aguero told City's website.

"I don’t think I’ll need to change my style."

"I'll obviously be doing my best to do what the manager says, and try to work the way he wants me to, and of course he will know how he wants to use me."

Aguero's arrival comes with his international teammate Carlos Tevez, City's captain and top scorer last season, agitating for a move away from England to be closer to his family.

Set to move to Manchester with his wife and child, Aguero, who made his first team debut for Independiente at the age of 15 and moved to Madrid when he was 18, insists he will have no trouble in his new surroundings.

"I think I'll adapt to life in England - I don't like hot weather, so I'll be fine there," he said.

"I'm sure I'm going to enjoy myself here and life will be fine."

Aguero is already aiming to help his new side beat United in the season-opening Community Shield, lifting what he hopes will be the first of many trophies in a City shirt.

"I think it's a clasico, a derby that every fan wants to see," Aguero said.

"People count down the days to the match."

"Of course there has to be a winner, but you have to be happy and enjoy it as well as focusing because you know it's an important game."

"Someone has to win, and all the better if it's us."

"I saw the FA Cup victory (over Stoke in May), and it's clear that from now on this is a team that will be competing for important things every year."

"Let's hope that there will be quite a few trophies."
