Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has disclosed that he is afraid of playing against Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, ahead of both teams’ clash on Sunday in a Premier League derby clash.
Mourinho’s men will today evening tackle the Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium.
The last encounter between United and City, saw the Red Devils defeat Pep Guardiola’s side 3-2 at Etihad back in April.
United head to the game after defeating Juventus 2-1 in the Champions League fixture played on Wednesday night.
But Mourinho has, however, admitted that he fears facing Aguero because of his fantastic qualities.
“I only fear when I play against Aguero,” Metro UK quoted Mourinho as saying ahead of the match.
“I admire him because of his fantastic qualities. There are little things in his game that I’m not a big fan of.
“But the numbers speak by itself, how many goals he scores – and is not about scoring goals in one season.”
The kick-off time for the match is 5:30pm.
