Aguero: Difference between Barca & City

LaLiga

New FC Barcelona signing Sergio Aguero has revealed a, perhaps surprising, difference between his new team and his former club Manchester City's training regime.

The 33-year-old left the reigning Premier League champions as a free agent in July to join the LaLiga giants on a free transfer after reaching the end of his contract at the Etihad, where he had spent the previous 10 years of his career.

Almost immediately after the forward returned from vacation following his 2021 Copa America triumph with Argentina, the Catalan giants announced that he would be ruled out of action for 10 weeks as he had suffered an injury to his right calf, adding to their troubles after Lionel Messi's shock departure.

Now on the road to recovery, Aguero recently revealed what he feels is a big difference between the two aforementioned clubs during an interview with Twitch streamer Ibai Llanos, with the Camp Nou side seemingly having a more relaxed approach to training.

"At [Manchester] City, we arrived an hour and a half before training, and here half an hour before," he told Llanos, per sport.es.

"I said, well, I'll come in at least an hour before and try and go to the gym or do some things (at Barcelona), but nobody was there, it was all shut, dammit."

Aguero is now working his way back to full fitness to lead the line for his new team after Antoine Griezmann's recent departure to Atletico Madrid on deadline day.
