Aguero sends message to fans following landmark City goal

Sergio Agüero has share his delight at scoring his 200th and 201st Manchester City goals in yesterday’s Community Shield win over Chelsea.

The Argentine stole the show with a brace at Wembley in a 2-0 win for Pep Guardiola’s side, who continued the new season in ominous fashion after winning the Premier League last term.

Aguero opened the scoring after just 13 minutes with a low finish following some good play from midfielder Phil Foden – with the strike marking the 30-year-old’s 200th City goal.

And he made it 2-0 and 201 in the second half with a other clinical finish after he was put through on goal from Bernardo Silva.

Following the victory, Aguero took to Twitter to send a message to the City fans.

He said: “A new title and just broke the 200th goal mark for City. Great way to begin the season. And we’ll aim for more! #CommunityShield”.

Aguero, who joined City in 2011, became the club’s record ever goalscorer early last season when he found the net against Napoli in a 4-2 win for Pep Guardiola’s side, and his 30 goals throughout the rest of the season took the striker to within touching distance of the 200 mark.

Now with the double century in the bag, Guardiola expects Aguero to push on even further this season as he and his team-mates look to defend the Premier League title.

“Sergio always has a little bit with his physicality,” said Guardiola of the Argentine following his masterclass at Wembley, “Maybe he needs a little bit more time to take his physical condition. But he arrived so sharp, so good after his knee operation at the end of last season.

“He suffered the previous years with a little bit of a problem and Ramon Cugat – the best doctor in the world – made the perfect surgery and now he feels free.

“I think it’s good news for us for the season. He scored two goals, produced chances, he could have scored three or four or five. That is good.”
