Aguero tells Lautaro Martinez to joins Chelsea and player under Poch

Sergio Aguero has backed Mauricio Pochettino to be a big success at Chelsea and feels he can get the best out of Enzo Fernandez, while the former striker has no fears over Lautaro Martinez’s ability to adapt to the Premier League.

The west Londoners finally announced the arrival of the ex-Tottenham head coach at the backend of last month and he has been tasked with turning around the club’s fortunes after they recorded their worst finish (12th) and points tally (44) in Premier League history.

Aguero is certain his compatriot is the right man for the job, while he feels Pochettino is the ideal manager for Chelsea’s £107million club-record signing Fernandez to learn and grow under.

‘His input can be very valuable. Already at Tottenham he has shown his worth and that he empowers young players,’ Aguero told

‘He has a big task ahead of him because he has a very large squad and he will have to find a balance.

‘Chelsea, in addition to the previous market in which it has had many new signings, has had a policy of buying young players who can get to assemble very well. You have to give him time to do his job and I’m sure you’ll see the results.’

Specifically on Enzo, he continued: ‘As I said, Poch always empowers his young players, and Enzo is one of those.

‘This was his first season in England and although Chelsea did not perform well, he showed that he is up to the task of this great league. I think that with Pochettino’s hand he will perform even more and better.’

Pochettino is keen to bring in a new goalscorer this summer and has been linked with a move for another World Cup-winning Argentine, Inter’s Lautaro Martinez, and Aguero is a massive fan of the striker.

‘A forward of the stature of Lautaro can play in the best leagues in the world,’ said the former Manchester City forward.

‘And of course he would do very well in the Premier League. He has talent and goalscoring ability and I think he would adapt very well to the English league.’

On the possibility of Mateo Kovacic swapping Chelsea for the Etihad, Aguero added: ‘We know that Kovacic is a midfielder with very good ball handling, very much like City. He has gone through Real Madrid, Chelsea and experience also counts.

‘We will have to see what Ilkay [Gundogan] decides, he has been key at City and in the last two seasons in particular. I would love for him to continue at the club, although I respect the final decision he makes. He is a great professional and a better person.’
