The technician of the Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said that he does not expect to see the forward Sergio Aguero wearing his team colors next season due to the Argentine’s association for a decade with his eternal rival, the Manchester City.
Agüero, who has 257 goals in 384 appearances and has won four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and five League Cups at City, will leave when his contract expires at the end of this season.
The last high-profile player to join City from United was his compatriot from Aguero, Carlos Tevez. He spent two seasons on loan at United before joining rivals City in 2009 and won the league title in the 2011-12 season.
Solskjaer said he does not expect Agüero to follow in Tevez’s footsteps. “I wouldn’t expect any player who has played for a club for 10 years to want to go to his rival in the city,” Solskjaer told reporters ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.
“I know we are professionals, but when you play for Manchester United you don’t go to Manchester City. We have had examples of that and I really disagree with that. When I was playing for Man United, if a rival club tried to sign me and I had gone … well, where is the loyalty? Loyalty is one of the values that I really put up high ”.
United are second in the Premier League with 57 points after 29 games, 17 points behind City, who have played two more games.
