Sergio Aguero will still not be guaranteed a starting spot despite extending his Manchester City contract, according to Pep Guardiola. "Thank you so much (to him) for that".

The Belgium global, who scored eight goals and provided 16 assists in City's record-breaking league title triumph last season, picked up the injury in training last month.

Aguero is City's all-time record scorer with 204 goals, including the stoppage-time victor against Queens Park Rangers in 2012 that won a first top division title in 44 years.

"I speak with the doctor sometimes, and he's telling me he's going so well".

Guardiola, however, hardly cleared up the uncertainty and claimed not to know how long he will be without the 24-year-old defender for. Imagine how many goals he'll have by the time he finally leaves us?

"I still need three, four, five weeks, but I'm getting there", De Bruyne said at the launch of FIFA 19.

"No disrespect to them but none of them really are a game that you think "wow, that is going to be a cracker'".

"His first high pressing is the best in the world but he's still a young player and they have gaps to improve", said Guardiola. Today they want to live new experiences, and it's not bad if they want to discover new languages or go to other places with their families and prove themselves in other leagues.

"The ideal is to have a full stadium every time and being behind the team like insane but we know sometimes it doesn't happen".

"The most nice thing and the reason I like to be here again and again is now it's a new challenge. If done, OK, improve with that".
