Despite never actually winning the Premier Leaguea s player of the year award, Sergio Aguero has been rated as not only the best player in the league, but also the world by Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
Hart, who has played against all three players at one point or another, believes Aguero, when fit, is more dangerous than both Lionel Messi and two time defending Ballon da Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
The England international was hailed by the English media for a heroic display against Barcelona, keeping out the Catalans and Messi. It was only because of Harta s performance that Citya s loss to the Camp Nou side seemed respectable, at least on paper.
During Ronaldoa s time at Manchester United, Hart faced the Portuguese a few number of times and says that Aguero is far more lethal in front of goal.
a Just from working with him on a daily basis and from what Ia ve seen this season, probably Aguero. He just knows how to score.
a In training he particularly excites you most days. A long clearance could turn into a goal because hea s got that ability to take it round five people and score. Sergio is a very natural player.
a Ia m backing Sergio because hea s my player. But Messi is a phenomenal player. Hea s definitely one of the best players Ia ve ever played against.a
Hart is with the English national team at the moment and is set to face Lithuania in the Euro qualification match. Following that game, The Three Lions take on 2006 world champions Italy in an international friendly.
After the international break, Hart and his City team will line up against rejuvenated London club Crystal Palace, before travelling to cross town neighbours Manchester United on April 12th.
