Sergio Aguero : Michael Owen Was My Idol!

Sergio Aguero has admitted that he was a Liverpool fan before moving to Manchester City.

The Argentine international striker, who is also the son-in-law of Argentinean legend Diego Maradona, says Manchester United striker Michael Owen’s success with the Reds led him to following them.

Aguero told the Daily Mail : “I’m not really a fan,”.

“It’s just that one of the players who was my idol when I was growing up was Michael Owen. He was quite small and had an eye for goal, just like me. It’s since he scored against Argentina in 1998, although I wasn’t too happy at the time.”
