Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has hailed Sergio Aguero as the best striker in the world in the last three seasons.

Aguero is Manchester City’s all-time goalscorer with 94 league goals since joining the Citizens in 2011 from La Liga side Atletico Madrid and the 27-year-old has scored 21 goals in 29 appearances for Manuel Pellegrini’s side this term.

“I love Sergio Aguero. The last three or four years of my career in the Premier League he was the hardest striker I played against,” Ferdinand, who spent 12 seasons at Old Trafford said.

“He’s quick, he’s got a low centre of gravity, he’s strong, he’ll go off both sides – left or right, doesn’t mind – and he’s a devastating finisher when’s he’s in front of goal and I think he could play in any team in the world and he’ll do this, he’ll score goals.

“The difference with him is he’s got different types of goals, he scores all different types of goals. I love him. I can’t speak highly enough of him.”
