Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed that David De Gea is his best friend in England.
The Manchester Derby is one of the biggest games in the Premier League every season, and the players involved in it ensure that they give their best on the pitch to seal a victory for their clubs. One such player is Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine striker has been involved in some of the best derby games over the past seasons, and the major duel in these fixtures has been shared between him and Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea.
However, their club rivalries aside, they maintain a close friendship off the pitch, as they were teammates at Atletico Madrid, and moved to Manchester together in 2011.
The striker joined Manchester City for a reported fee of £38 million, while Ferguson chose De Gea to pick up the reigns from Van Der Sar at Old Trafford. But joining rival clubs didn’t break their friendship.
In a recent interview with Daily Mail, Aguero named De Gea as one of his closest friends in England.
The Argentine international revealed: “Benjamin (his son) lives with his mother in Argentina. He goes to school there. He spends a week here every month. He has a room here and when my siblings come, they stay here too.
“But most of the time I’m on my own. If not, I’ll hang out with Nico Otamendi – or David De Gea. I hang out a lot with De Gea because we played together at Atletico Madrid. We have a good friendship. But he plays at United and I play at City.”
Without doubt, Aguero and De Gea are two of the best players in Manchester, and while they remain close friends off the pitch, they shall continue to share a fiery local rivalry on it, especially when major trophies are concerned.
