Manchester City Star Sergio Aguero Is 'The Greatest Foreign Player In Premier League History'

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been hailed as the best foreign player in the Premier League's history ahead of Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Thierry Henry.

That's according to The Sun's Neil Custis, who branded the 32-year-old Argentine star as the "most instinctive goalscorer that plays in this country."

Speaking on talkSPORT, Custis said: "If I was a manager of a football team and I had Aguero, I'd play him on one leg never mind when he's nearly fit.

"He's the best foreign player ever to play in the Premier League.

"He's the most instinctive goalscorer that plays in this country and offers so much to Man City now."

Aguero arrived at City from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and has played an instrumental role in their modern success.

The Argentina international has become City's record scorer and his goalscoring exploits rank him as the fourth-highest goalscorer in Premier League history.

The former Atletico star has made 382 appearances for City and scored an incredible 256 times.

Ex-City winger Trevor Sinclair also echoed Custis' verdict on Aguero by pointing to what the Argentine has achieved in England.

"I think 256 goals in 382 games, four titles, FA Cup, four League Cups, the most iconic moment, 93:20, in Premier League history. Sergio Aguero," he said.

Ray Parlour, on the other hand, disagreed with Custis and ranked Aguero in third place behind Manchester United legend Eric Cantona and Arsenal icon Henry.

The 48-year-old talkSPORT pundit said: "Do you know who I used to love, Bergkamp. I'd go Cantona, his impact was unbelievable.

"When he put his collar up, some of the goals and antics he got up to.

"I think [Didier] Drogba made a massive impact. [Gianfranco] Zola as well. It's really difficult to pick.

"I loved Dennis Bergkamp, he'd usually be in my top three but it's being too biased then.

"Henry for his goals, people will probably put him as number one. Then Cantona for his impact. Aguero would get in my top three."
