Fans Slam Pep Guardiola for ‘Lying’ Man City Would Never Replace Sergio Aguero After Haaland’s Splendid Start
- Pep Guardiola once said that Manchester City will never be able to replace club legend Sergio Aguero who left the club one year ago
- Fans have now poked holes into Pep's claims after Erling Haaland's blistering start to Premier League life
- Aguero's legacy in the blue side of Manchester is still intact, but early signs are showing that not even Allan Shearer's all-time EPL top-scorer record is safe
It's not rare to find some fans branding Pep Guardiola a pathological liar. The Manchester City boss has etched his name on history books as one of the best managers world football has ever seen.
But somewhere up in his sleeve of tricks and tactics is his ability to convince people of something before something entirely different happens.

For instance, before a past Premier League game against Arsenal, Guardiola insisted and reiterated how he was in awe of Mikel Arteta's side. Arteta served as his assistant at Etihad before moving to the Emirates. Guardiola went a step further and insisted that he was in fact, learning from Arteta's playbook.
Full-time score; 5-0. In favour of Manchester City.
The Spanish tactician is on the spot again. This time with his claim roughly one year ago that City would never replace Sergio Aguero. The Premier League legend had seen out his contract and after his final game in England, Guardiola was asked how City would cope without the Argentinian.
And in-between tears, Guardiola said
"We will never be able to replace him."
The English giants failed in their subsequent pursuit of Harry Kane and played two seasons without a recognised number 9 as Gabriel Jesus was deployed on the wings. But they finally landed Erling Haaland and boy, Guardiola can lie!

With his recent hat trick against Manchester United, Haaland is literally mocking the Premier League. The Norwegian is currently 9 goals away from equalling last season's Golden Boot tally. If he maintains this pace, it has been predicted that he will finish the season with a staggering 67 goals.
One fan, @CFCMod_, said,
"Still cannot believe that bald man was crying on live TV saying "we cannot replace him" just to get Haaland to terrorise us even more. He deserves an Oscar."
Well, next time Pep says something, take it with a pinch of salt.

Haaland has earned comparisons with the Paris Saint-Germain star after hitting the ground running since joining City in the summer.
The youngster has not wasted time settling in since his arrival, having already netted 14 times in the Premier League.
