But striker has faith in Pellegrini to bring title home.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted that he and his teammates are worried about the challenge that the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea pose to their title credentials this season, but has backed new boss Manuel Pellegrini to be the man to bring the title back to the Etihad, the Daily Mail reports.
The 25-year-old, who now famously sealed City’s first title win in 44 years in 2012 also revealed that he is keeping one eye on the golden boot.
And though City are wary of the challenge they face from their rivals, the Argentina international is confident that the side have the right man leading them.
“Man United will be desperate to retain it under their new manager and their squad is impressive,” Aguero told Match of the Day magazine.
“Chelsea will also be dangerous, and you know Jose Mourinho will bring out the best in them. But we have a new manager too and I think the other teams will be looking at us as potential champions this season.”
The Chilean coach has endured an up-and-down start to the season with City, after disposing of Newcastle on the opening day, they have since lost to Cardiff City and only marginally overcame Hull, but Aguero insists the sluggish start isn’t fazing him as he insists the atmosphere within the squad is much brighter this time around under Pellegrini.
“Every manager is different, but the whole squad has really been enjoying his training sessions and he’s made time to speak to every player,” Aguero added.
“It’s not just Manuel Pellegrini’s arrival, the new signings have bonded really well.
“I hope to score a lot of goals this season to win back the Premier League. Obviously my job is to score and create goals, but the team result is the most important things so I’m happy as long as we’re winning games.”
