Sergio Aguero's Son Loves Jamie Vardy And Wants To Be Like Leicester City Striker

Sergio Aguero's Son Loves Jamie Vardy And Wants To Be Like Leicester City Striker

Sergio Aguero's son is blessed in the sense that he's the child one of the Premier League's best ever strikers and the grandchild of the late, great Diego Maradona.

Throw in the fact that six-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi is Aguero's best friend and it's clear that 11-year-old Benjamin is well connected to some serious footballing talent.

But you might be surprised to learn that one of his favourite players is none other than Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

In a video from Manchester City's 'All or Nothing' Amazon Prime documentary that is doing the rounds again, Aguero explains his son is well aboard the Vardy hype train.

The Argentine had just scored the 12th hat-trick of his City career in a 5-1 thrashing of Leicester in 2018 and he made sure to get hold of Vardy's shirt as per a request from his little one.

"My son asked for it," Aguero tells the cameras in the changing room.

The fact that Aguero's son loves a former Stockbridge Steels player who used to drink half a bottle of Lucozade filled with port is quite brilliant.

But then again, the former Fleetwood Town man's stats speak for themselves. Just the 115 goals in 231 Premier League games, including 37 against the league's traditional 'big six'.

Only Aguero, with 54, has more than Vardy.

Aguero Jr is also a massive fan of PSG and France star Kylian Mbappe, as the City talisman revealed in an Instagram Q&A in 2018.

"Benja always liked David Silva and now he is talking a lot about Mbappe," Aguero wrote.

"He likes players who treat the ball very well."
