Sergio Aguero insists he has no regrets about his move to Barcelona with the striker expected to finally make his debut for the club on Sunday against Valencia.

The Argentine has been forced to wait to make his first appearance due to injury but did play in a training game yesterday against Cornella and scored for the first time in a Barcelona shirt.

There were rumors over the summer that Aguero wanted out of Barca, after seeing Lionel Messi leave, but the 33-year-old insists that was not the case at all.

“No. Let’s be honest. What player does not want to be at Barça? I would tell you that the majority of footballers would like to wear this shirt, no matter how good or bad Barça is,” he said.

“I arrived with the expectation of playing with Leo and that a good team would be put together, which was what the club tried to do. When they called me, I thought: “I don’t care what they pay me. I’m feeling good and I’m going to help the team as much as I can.”

Aguero was also asked whether he thought the difference between himself and players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo was “technical or mental” and revealed he’d thought about it lot and even asked the GOAT for his advice.

“Many times I thought what was missing,” he said. “And one day I asked Leo. He told me that to have a chance to win the Ballon d’Or I had to win the Champions League. And he is right.”

The striker is being tipped to start on the bench when Barca return to action against Valencia but is expected to get around 20 minutes in the second half at the Camp Nou.
