Sergio Aguero's father Leonel has claimed that Pep Guardiola was playing up to the cameras when getting emotional about his on's departure. 

The City boss was tearful during Aguero's last home game for the Premier League champions and described the Argentina striker as a "special person" who can "never be replaced".

"I don’t believe him," Aguero Senior told Radio La Red in Argentina. "He was never sincere with my son.

"He never wanted him in my opinion. He wants to be the protagonist in his clubs rather than the player.

"From one day to the next he changes the players, he changes the midfield, you never know if you're the main choice player or not.

"As Sergio has said before, things always depend on the club and the manager of the moment and that happens everywhere.

“They say your time is up at the club and the only option you’ve got left is to leave. My son was waiting right up to the last moment to renew with City but it didn’t happen.”

Aguero has since signed a two-year contract at Barcelona, with his friend Leo Messi expected to also put pen to paper on a two-year extension at Camp Nou.
