Manchester City’s star striker Sergio Aguero says that he can understand why his side have faced a lot of criticism this season, but he expects the champions’ form to quickly improve.
The Argentine has been the star for City so far, scoring 12 goals, but it has generally been a difficult start as they currently sit bottom of their Champions League group and lie six points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea going into this weekend’s fixtures.
The 26-year-old said: “Of course we understand the people who have been criticising us.
“The club invests in top players and the fans want to see more from us.”
City have failed to win 16 of their 24 Champions League outings to date, which is in stark contrast with their domestic record, with the Citizens having won two Premier League titles and the League Cup in the past three years.
Aguero added: “We still have time to put things right. The supporters here are more respectful and patient but they still expect a bit more from all of us. We can still turn it around, though.”
City’s defeat to CSKA Moscow in midweek now means that City must beat Bayern Munich at the Etihad as well as Roma in the Stadio Olimpico to have any chance of surviving Group E, and even then it may not be enough to secure qualification, should other results go against them.
With their attentions back on the Premier League this weekend, Aguero will be looking to add to his goal tally as his City side travel to strugglers QPR on Saturday evening.
