But the retired striker’s scoring success did not stop him being subject to Guardiola’s strict fitness rules after he was accused of being overweight by the Spaniard.

Aguero, 34, who was forced to quit the game with a heart issue, said: “In the first season he said: ‘I left you out because you turned up fat this week’. What was I going to say? He was right. These things happen.

“You come across a bit of chicken for example, then you are going to be 50 grams over.

“If your ideal weight is 79-80kg and you were 80 kilos and 100 grams you would be fined and you wouldn’t play. He said it in a good way.

“At that time, I didn’t have his confidence. But I was always very respectful to the coaches.”  

Aguero also admitted he struggled to adapt to Guardiola’s pressing style at first.

He would press defenders and then be left no oxygen to attack.

Aguero says Guardiola “taught” him how to press.

He added: “When I arrived, Guardiola asked me to press the centre backs a lot, and then I didn’t have oxygen to attack.

“I wasn’t used to press but Guardiola taught me the way to do it.”
