Sergio Aguero’s father Leonel El Castillo reveals why he believes Pep Guardiola shed fake tears


    Sergio Aguero’s father Leonel El Castillo has stressed that the tears the coach of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola shed after Aguero played his last game at the Etihad Stadium was fake.

    The 33-year-old Argentine striker played his last game at the Etihad Stadium on May 23, 2021, during a Premier League game between Man City and Everton.

    In the Premier League game, Aguero scored two goals as Manchester City defeated Everton 5-0. The two goals took his total goals for Manchester City to a club record of 260 goals.

    After the match, the Premier League trophy was presented to Man City and the club did a sent forth party for the Argentine striker whose contract with the club will expire on June 30, 2021.

    During the sent forth party that took place at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola shed some tears when he was being asked questions concerning his relationship with the club’s legend.

    After the UEFA Champions League final which Man City lost to Chelsea on May 29, Aguero flew straight to Barcelona to join the Spanish club for free.

    Days after the signing of the deal, Sergio Aguero’s father told Argentinian Radio La Red that the tears Pep Guardiola shed during the sent forth ceremony were fake because the striker waited until the final minutes to get a contract extension but he wasn’t given.

    “I don’t believe his tears”, Sergio Aguero’s father said. “No, I don’t. For me, he never wanted [Aguero].

    He alleged that Guardiola’s emotional display was just for the cameras. “He always wants to be the main man and not the players”, he added.

    “I don’t believe in Guardiola. He never wanted the Champions League trophy, he wants to be the protagonist of all the teams.

    “There are things about Guardiola, he is a great coach. But from one day to the next the players change you, the environment changes. You never know if you are a starter or not.”

    After Manchester City announced that the contract of Sergio Aguero would not be extended, there were a couple of speculations. Some reports claimed that Chelsea showed interest in him.

    However, the Argentine football icon ended up signing a two-year deal with FC Barcelona two days after the UEFA Champions League final.

    After he landed the deal with the Spanish side, his father, Leonel El Castillo confirmed that Chelsea and Arsenal wanted to sign him after his fallout with Man City.

    “He is happy right now after signing for Barcelona. I see him happy”, Sergio Aguero’s father said.

    “He didn’t know what was going to happen with his future. There were several clubs interested in signing him. Arsenal were interested in him and Chelsea to the last minute.

    “If he didn’t stay in England, it was going to be Italy or Spain.

    “He’s been friends with Lionel Messi since they were 15 and they’ve always talked. It looks like Messi is going to stay at Barcelona so they’re going to play together.”
