Community Shield: Ferdinand heaps praises on Aguero


Sergio Aguero was the star of the show as Manchester City downed Chelsea to win the Community Shield, and Rio Ferdinand has singled him out as the league’s finest.
Aguero’s brace was enough to see City take a comfortable 2-0 victory and pick up the first piece of silverware of the season.
The Argentinian hit struck two clinical efforts, leaving pundit Ferdinand waxing lyrical about his abilities.
It took Aguero’s all-time goalscoring tally to 200 for City, making him one of the most prolific of all time.
“Getting 200 league goals for Manchester City is a phenomenal amount, and I think he is the best striker in the Premier League, he was the hardest I played against, fantastic movement, pace and awareness,” said Ferdinand on BT Sport.
“I would take him over Harry Kane. In terms of someone who is hard to play against, he brings so much off both feet, and with his movement and pace he offers all sorts of problems.
Kane is a great player, but Aguero just takes it.”
Aguero is set to spend the season contending with Gabriel Jesus as the focal point of Pep Guardiola’s attack.
The Argentinian at times found his chances limited last year, before Jesus was struck by injury.
City will open their Premier League campaign away to Arsenal on Sunday, August 12.
