Liverpool legend Ian Rush has named Sergio Aguero as the player he’d love to have at Anfield, in conversation with talkSPORT.
The Manchester City striker is nothing short of a Premier League legend, having registered 254 goals and 73 assists from 370 competitive club appearances.
Aguero is currently the fourth-highest goalscorer in Premier League history, and the highest non-English scorer in the history of the competition, with 180 goals in the division.
The 32-year-old also holds the record for most hat-tricks in the Premier League, with twelve, and is Man City’s all-time record goalscorer.
Despite being in the twilight of his career, Aguero is showing no signs of slowing down – he got 16 league goals last season despite an injury-hit campaign – and is likely to be in the running for the Golden Boot once again this term.
Rush, Liverpool’s all-time record goalscorer, chose the Argentine over the likes of Raul Jimenez, Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the one player he’d take over Liverpool’s world-class midfield trident.
“It would be none of them (Jimenez, Kane or Aubameyang), it would be Aguero! For me, he is an unbelievable player,” the Welshman told talkSPORT (11 September, 12.50pm).
“I like watching him inside the penalty box, he is a penalty box sort of player. Aubameyang is class but…”
While Jimenez, Kane and Aubameyang are high-calibre players, Aguero really is in a category of his own, his heroics having helped Man City to the most glittering, trophy-laden spell in their history.
Of course, having Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the same front line is not too shabby, and that Rush would only take Aguero over any of the other candidates shows just how good the Reds attack is at present.
