Wayne Rooney has paid tribute to Sergio Aguero’s Premier League legacy ahead of the attacker’s Manchester City exit.
Aguero is set to leave the Citizens after his 10-year spell at the club, while speaking about the Argentina international, he said: “He’s certainly one of the Premier League greats that’s for sure. He’s right up there. He’s a fantastic player.
“He’s outstanding and has been a revelation. I’m sure he will be missed at City and by the Premier League because he’s a quality player.
“Whether he stays in England I don’t know, but whatever he does, he’s certainly had a fantastic career.”
Manchester United legend, however, said that Aguero is not the best foreigner in the Premier League as he thinks the No 1 main man in the England top tier was another player from Arsenal.
“Aguero has been fantastic and is certainly right up there. But if I was asked to choose then I’d probably say Thierry Henry was the best foreign player,” he said.
“There’s a few in a pack just behind him who are right up there like Aguero, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Dennis Bergkamp and Eric Cantona.”
